Summary

For the modelling of the thermal shock behaviour of components it is assumed in general that the material parameters are independent on temperature. For many materials this is approximately true, but in the case of PTC-ceramics, the relevant material properties are strongly temperature dependent and the above approximation is not possible. The consequences for the thermal shock behaviour are analysed in this paper.
