Uncertainty Assessment for Very High Temperature Thermal Diffusivity Measurements on Molybdenum, Tungsten and Isotropic Graphite

Abstract : Abstract The French National Metrology Institute LNE has improved its homemade laser flash apparatus in order to perform accurate and reliable measurements of thermal diffusivity of homogeneous solid materials at very high temperature. The inductive furnace and the associated infrared (IR) detection systems have been modified and a specific procedure for the in situ calibration of the used radiation thermometers has been developed. This new configuration of the LNE’s diffusivimeter has been then applied for measuring the thermal diffusivity of molybdenum up to 2200 °C, tungsten up to 2400 °C and isotropic graphite up to 3000 °C. Uncertainties associated with these high temperature thermal diffusivity measurements have been assessed for the first time according to the principles of the “Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement” (GUM). Detailed uncertainty budgets are here presented in the case of the isotropic graphite for measurements performed at 1000 °C, 2000 °C and 3000 °C. The relative expanded uncertainty (coverage factor k = 2) of the thermal diffusivity measurement is estimated to be between 3 % and 5 % in the whole temperature range for the three investigated refractory materials.
