Abstract

Polymer composites offered broad engineered applications, however their diversity get restricted owing to fluctuations in thermomechanical properties during heating or cooling hence great concern required prior their applications through thermomechanical analysis (TMA). Traditionally, TMA or dilatometry found to be simple, ideal, reliable, sensitive, excellent and basic thermal analytical technique. TMA provides valuable information on thermal expansion, glass transitions temperature (Tg), softening points, composition and phase changes on material of having different geometries simply by applying a constant force as a function of temperature. This compilation highlights the basics and experimental of TMA for both research and technical applications and also provide literature on TMA of polymers, hybrid composites, nanocomposites and their diverse applications.
