4 Thermal effects . In the broad sense, Thermal effects are those caused by a redistribution of internal energy in a system, and they may be grouped in natural and artificial (see Introduction to Thermodynamics). More often, however, instead of considering a generic compound system out of equilibrium, a system at equilibrium is assumed, and Thermal effects are understood as those caused by a temperature variation forced from outside or due to internal processes. Most of the times, both Thermal effects ' ( Thermal response) and Thermal causes' ( Thermal load) are included in the study.
5 Thermal behaviour of materials is a broader subject, more directly related to their general Thermal properties than to Thermal effects of specific interest; heat transfer processes, or the fact that when energy is added to a material it gets hotter, are general Thermal behaviour of matter, usually not included in the analysis of Thermal effects . Thermal effects on materials may be used advantageously (all kind of thermometers relay on them), or a nuisance (shape and dimension distortions due to heating or cooling, malfunction of electronic equipment).
6 Most of the times, Thermal effects are understood to focus just on materials (understood as solid materials ), and to deal with the effects of a non-comfort working temperature (cold or hot) on some material properties (structural, electronic, etc.), including the Thermal processes used to produce, change or dispose of those materials . Sometimes it is also said the effect of heat on materials ', meaning the effect of heating so as to increase the internal energy. Of course, the effects of cooling are also relevant Thermal effects .
7 The traditional Thermal effects are: Phase change, basically melting and boiling (phase transition temperatures). Glass transition temperature. Dimensional change, basically Thermal expansion (in general, contraction if negative). Elasto-plastic changes, due to Thermal stresses. Brittle/ductile transition temperature. Chemical change, decomposition, oxidation, ignition. Other physical changes as drying, segregation, outgassing, colour change, etc. Thermal effects due to non- Thermal causes: frictional heating, electrical heating, chemical heating, nuclear heating.
8 A general idea to keep in mind is that materials cannot resist very high temperature, say over 1000 K, without decomposition; materials resistant to high temperatures (from 1000 K to 3000 K) are called refractories. On the other hand, the effect of very low temperatures (cryogenics) is mainly an increase in fragility (most materials break or even shatter after a knock at cryogenic temperatures), what may help on hard-metals machining; cryogenic cooling of metals increase their resistance to wear. An overview of some possible classification of Thermal effects helps to centre the field, although only a selected mix of topics, in a structured layout but with different levels of detail, is covered below.
9 Thermal effects on materials 2. materials . TYPES AND properties . materials are solid bodies with intrinsic properties (apart of the shape) that render them useful, mainly for structures, but also for services ( isolation, piping), electronics, optics, bioengineering, Fluids are treated as intermediate states here (in materials processing). A substance is a chemically identified pure or mixture matter (solid or fluid). Matter is what has mass ( everything except perfect vacuum). materials are usually classified in four categories (basically depending on the type of chemical bond): Metals (metallic bonds, polycrystalline solids).
10 They are obtained by high-temperature reduction of their ores with carbon (as for iron in a blast furnace), or by high-temperature electrolysis of their molten ores (as for aluminium). They are the materials most used, and amongst them ferrous metals (90%; and non-ferrous being mostly alloys of Al, Cu, Ni and Ti). They are ductile, heavy, and good electrical and Thermal conductors. Ceramics (ionic bonds, amorphous inorganic solids). They are the most ancient (stones, bricks, glasses), usually made by previous calcination of raw materials (making cement powder) and final curing of composite mixtures, concrete is made with cement, sand and gravel (plus water).
