Educational Goals: 

Thermal analysis techniques can reveal localized information about a part's processing history, and processing-induced thermal properties that vary through the part cross section. Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA) data reveals important aspects of a plastic material’s behavior over an extended service life. See the how data is generated and learn about practical applications for Flash DSC, DSC, DMA, and TGA. This information can be very valuable for troubleshooting, failure analysis, material characterization, and material selection.
