Thermal and electrical properties of titanium between 300 and 1900 K
The specific heat capacity and electrical resistivity of titanium were measured by a subsecond pulse-heating method. Specimens were in the form of a 1.6-mm diameter-wire. Experiments covered the range between 300 and 1900 K; thermometry was provided by Pt10%Rh/Pt and W5%Re/W25%Re thermocouples. The maximum uncertainties in the specific heat capacity and electrical resistivity determinations were less than 3 and 1%, respectively. Results are reported and discussed for both the bcc and hcp structures and the transformation between the two phases.
