Thermal expansion client company development report - ctechba. The coefficient of linear thermal expansion (cte, α, or α 1) is a material property that is indicative of the extent to which a mate-rial expands upon heating. Thermal expansion is a small, but not always insignificant effect typical coefficients are measured in parts per million per kelvin (10 −6 /k) that means your typical classroom meter stick never varies in length by more than a 100 µm in its entire lifetime — probably never more than 10 µm while students are using it.

Pmic (precision measurements and instruments corporation) laboratory tests materials of low thermal expansion, moisture expansion, and thermal conductivity expansion measurements use high precision dilatometers and michelson interferometers. Thermal expansion of solids: coefficient of linear expansion ( α ): the coefficient of linear expansion, α , is defined as the change in length per unit length per unit change in temperature.
