Understanding Thermal Growth with John Lambert
In this episode, the thermal growth and the understanding of the phenomenon—how it occurs and how to prevent and calculate it—is being discussed by John Lambert. So, first of all, we have to know what actually the thermal growth is. The answer is simple. This phenomenon occurs when the rotating machines get hot due to the difference in temperature and they start to expand in every direction. As these machines are mostly metal so their thermal growth is explained by the coefficient of linear thermal expansion that is already known for many different materials.
