Test setup for the CTE test of CFRP tapes in thermal-vacuum-chamber
Test setup for the CTE test of CFRP tapes in thermal-vacuum-chamber

  • Determination of the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) fpr CFRP tapes with the scope of an ESA development project
  • The CTE for the tapes have been measured in the temperature range of -150°C to +150°C
  • Design and assembly of a test setup for the measurement of thermal elongation of CFRP tapes for extreme thermoelastic stability requirements
  • The special challenge for the design of the test setup was to achieve the high accuracy that is required for measuring very low CTE
