The Thermal Analysis Laboratory is characterised by the variety of possibilities to physically investigate materials. Of interest are structural changes in connection with thermal stress. The experiments with the technologically high-quality analysis equipment aim to identify complex relationships in the behaviour of materials.
The Thermal Analysis Laboratory is available to students as part of their education and also supports the Research & Development department in various scientific projects. If capacity is available, it is possible to carry out projects with industrial partners.
