Scope of application

Physics of solid state, mechanics, physics of phase transitions
The dilatometer is used to measure changes in linear dimensions and to determine the coefficients of linear thermal expansion of solids.
The principle of operation of a dilatometer is to measure the change in the size of the sample DL when the temperature changes. The temperature change of the sample is given programmed, in the mode of heating and cooling.
