Wörterbuch (en): Coefficient of expansion

  1. Coefficient of expansion
de: Ausdehnungskoeffizient (m)
fr: Coefficient de dilatation (m)
it: Coefficiente di espansione (m)
es: Coeficiente de dilatación (m)

A characteristic value that describes the behaviour of a substance with respect to changes in its dimensions under temperature changes - therefore often referred to as thermal expansion coefficient. Thermal expansion depends on the material used, so it is a material-specific material constant.
