About this event
This DSPE Lunch Lecture is hosted by JPE – Driven by innovation
and has the title “Tackling thermal contacts – Estimation and measurement of thermal contact resistance”. The lecture will be given by Evert Hooijkamp, mechanical engineer specialised in dynamic and thermal system design at JPE.
Tackling Thermal Contacts
Knowledge of thermal contacts is key in predicting an application’s thermal behavior accurately and to ultimately fulfill demands in today’s high precision industry. Estimates to predict the impact of a thermal contact resistance are known from the literature. However, these estimates are often inaccurate due to extrapolation from limited data. We developed a test setup to measure the thermal contact resistance for contacts with low contact forces in vacuum. The results give great insight into the thermal contact of interest.
In this presentation, we will briefly overview some estimates from the literature. But we focus on contacts with low contact forces presenting our test setup, measurement method and results.
We will start at 12:03pm on May 3.
