Most thermomechanical analysis experiments are carried out with some force applied to the test specimen. This force is often created electronically. It may be constant or changed during the experiment.
This method demonstrates conformance or calibrates the electronically applied force signal.
This method may be used for research and development, quality control, manufacturing or regulatory applications.
Other thermomechanical analyzer calibration functions include temperature by Test Method E1363 and length change by Test Method E2113.View Less
1.1 This test method describes the calibration or performance confirmation of the electronically applied force signal for thermomechanical analyzers over the range of 0 to 1 N.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.3 There is no ISO method equivalent to this standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
