Thermal expansion of copper

Postby MrCrabs » Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:37 am

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to find out some more about thermal expansion of copper. Unfortunately I haven't found out much on Google which is why I decided to ask around in a welding forum lol. What I'm interested in is how much the volume of copper expands/shrinks depending on the temperature. I have tried to conduct an experiment on my own but I had problems operating the DSC (btw if anyone could help me out that would be great LOL this is the model I used).

If anyone has a PDF document or knows where to find more information on thermal expansion of copper, please let me know. That's all, thank you!

Linear temperature expansion coefficient of copper in SI units is
16m/mK • 10^-6
Its all over google and the www
