WEBINAR:THERMAL ANALYSIS AND CALORIMETRY APPLIED TO THERMAL ENERGY STORAGE

SETARAM is pleased to invite you to our next 2016 Thermal Analysis Webinar.

We hope this information will help you further for your material science research and inspire your imagination.

When:
Tuesday, January 24th, 2017,
4:00PM UTC+1 (Paris, Berlin) – 10:00AM EDT (New York, Boston) in English.
You can ask questions in French as well!

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is defined as the temporary storage of thermal energy at high or low temperatures. As most of the renewable energy sources (solar, wind, …) are intermittently available, the target of TES is to improve performances of energy systems with a smoother supply and an increased reliability. The three main types of thermal energy storage use sensible heat, latent heat or thermochemical heat. For each TES mode, various types of transitions or reactions are exploited.

The webinar will focus on how the thermal analysis and calorimetric methods can be used to investigate the different TES techniques and to characterize the transitions or reactions of typically used  materials (fatty acids, paraffins, organic substances, inorganic salts, adsorbents, clathrates).

WEBINAR: HEAT CAPACITY MEASUREMENTS BY CALORIMETRIC TECHNIQUES – PART 1 : HEAT CAPACITY OF SOLIDS

When:  Tuesday, March 14th, 2017
5:00PM UTC+1 (Paris, Berlin)
11:00AM EDT (New York, Boston)

In English – You can ask questions in French as well!

Specific heat capacity Cp can be simply defined as the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a mass unit of material by 1 K at constant temperature and pressure. The determination of this thermophysical property of a material is essential in a large range of application fields, more particularly when the considered material has to be cooled or heated, whether it is during its synthesis, treatment, use, or recycling.

There will be two parallel sessions (one in French, one in English) in two different classrooms.

PURPOSE OF THE COURSE
The course is intended to fill the gap between the basic thermodynamic and kinetics concepts acquired by the students during their academic formation, and the use of experimental techniques such as thermal analysis and calorimetry to answer practical questions. The course will give the students insight into the different thermal and calorimetric methods which can be employed in studies aimed at characterizing the physico-chemical properties of materials. The course will give also the basic concepts for the physico-chemical comprehension of the relevant phenomena (adsorption/desorption, melting, crystallization, phase transitions, chemical interactions and reactions,…) .
