Thermoelastic effect

Thermoelastic effect

Thermoelastic effect is the temperature change resulting from stretching or contracting of an elastic material.

The temperature change in this case can be calculated mathematically from the stress dependence of the temperature at constant entropy. Through multiple mathematical manipulation as well as a property relation, this dependence of temperature on applied pressure is evaluated. It depends on temperature, thermal expansion coefficient and heat capacity.
