Abstract : The design, construction, and calibration of an automatic recording dilatometer capable of accurat ly measuring thermal expansion properties of solid materials from room temperature to 2000 F is discussed. The dilatometer was of the quartz-tube differential expansion type withAUXILIARY EQUIPMENT CAPABLE OF CONTINUOUS AND AUTOMATIC RECORDING OF THERMAL EXPANSION DATA. A statistical error analysis is included which indicates than an accuracy of !1% can be obtained with the instrument. (Author)
