TOTALTHERMALEXP

 

TOTALTHERMALEXP [ - ] returns the total thermal expansion of an incompressible substance, defined as the ratio of its change in length at a specified temperature to its length at 20C (68F) . The first argument must be the name of an incompressible substance.  The second argument must be temperature provided in the unit system that EES is configured to operate in. 

 

Example:

 

$UnitSystem SI C kPa mass

DELTAL\L_293=TotalThermalExp(Copper, T=25 [C])

 

{Solution:

DELTAL\L_293=0.00008204 [-]

}
