Melting and softening behaviour of quartz

Melting and softening behaviour of quartz

Category
Report/thesis
Abstract
The melting and softening, such as expansion, shrinking, reduction, and melting behaviour of 8 quartz was tested in the sessile drop furnace in CO atmosphere. The temperature was heated up to 1880oC both with 5.5oC/min and 10oC/min heating rate from 1500 oC and above. Meanwhile, the sessile drop testing was upgraded with new software, new lenses, and furnace pipe systems etc. The verification of this upgrade was also included in this report to assure the accuracy of experimental values. At the end, the softening and melting behaviour of quartz was concluded and compared.
