This study determines energy resolution of homogenous calorimeter setups with certain sizes to see the performance of the selected materials.
Traditional power measurements have been made by absorbing the laser radiation and measuring the heat rise in a calorimeter. In a thermal design, the user will need to direct the energy to the calorimeter, make a measurement, redirect the energy to the application of interest (welding, cutting, heat-treating etc.), and then go back and measure again.
Therefore, heat generation rate in the lithium ion battery is preferably measured directly using a calorimeter. There are two known methods: accelerated rate calorimetry (ARC) and isothermal heat conduction calorimetry (IHC) [9].
The compound also meets regulations for ASTM Cl 166 (flame propagation of elastomers), ASTM El62 (surface flammability of materials using a radiant heat energy source), ASTM E662 (specific optical density of smoke generated by solid materials) and ASTM El 354 (heat and visible smoke release rates for materials using an oxygen consumption calorimeter).
