Thermophysical properties of solid phase hafnium at high temperatures
The thermophysical properties of several hafnium samples with a content of zirconium below 1% were experimentally studied over a wide temperature range. The specific heat capacity and specific electrical resistivity were measured from 300 to 2340 K, the hemispherical total emissivity from 1000 to 2130 K, while the thermal diffusivity was measured in the range from 300 to 1470 K. The thermal conductivity and Lorentz number were computed from measured properties for the range from 300 to 1470 K. The specific heat capacity, specific electrical resistivity, and hemispherical total emissivity were measured by subsecond pulse calorimetry, and the thermal diffusivity using the laser flash method. Samples in the form of a thin rod or wire, and in the form of a thin disk were used in the first and second methods, respectively. For data reduction and computation of relevant parameters, recent literature values of the linear thermal expansion were used. The results are compared with literature da...ta and discussed.
