Glossary of Thermal and Thermomechanical Properties of Polymers

This project aims to identify the most important terms concerning thermal effects properties of relevance for polymers, and to give recommendations of unequivocal definitions for these terms. In literature and practical use it is obvious there is a significant lack of such a collection of terms. Some terms are even used in entirely different contexts or with different meanings to those intended.

The terms that have been selected for the preliminary list (see project web page) are those used in the conventional thermal (calorimetric) and thermomechanical (static or dynamic) characterization of polymeric materials. The project will be based to some extent on earlier reports related to nomenclature and terminology of thermal analysis published by the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry <www.ictac.org>. The project will be carried out in collaboration with ICTAC.
