Thermophysical and thermal optical properties of vanadium by millisecond calorimetry between 300 and 1900 K
A variant of millisecond-resolution pulse calorimetry in use at the Institute of Nuclear Sciences Vinca since 1983 involves measuring the specific heat and electrical resistivity of electrical conductors from room temperature to 2500 K and the hemispherical total emissivity and normal spectral emissivity from about 1300 K to the same maximum operating temperature. The method was applied successfully to different materials: pure metals, ferrous and nickel-base alloys, reactor materials, and refractory metals in thermal characterization of candidates for thermophysical property standard reference materials. This paper presents and discusses new data obtained in the study of thermophysical and thermal optical properties of vanadium.
