Summary

Early attempts at finite-element analysis modeling of stresses in a rotary kiln using room temperature or estimated high temperature data yielded stresses in excess of product strengths, yet the products in the model were being used successfully in practice. Capabilities were therefore developed to measure at-temperature properties to be used for thermal and mechanical finite-element analysis modeling. These properties include hot-wire thermal conductivity, thermal expansion, thermal dilation under load, creep, specific heat, Young's modulus, and Poisson's ratio.
