Category: Transient Hot Wire
Abstract: This paper investigates the thermal capacity of multiple varieties of lead-free molten solder for application in electrical equipment. An accurate understanding of these properties would lead to a better controlled soldering process. Measurements are taken by a transient hot wire that was originally designed to be used on pure molten metals, but an improved finite-element code analyzed the data (this is called FE modeling). The measurements are taken from the melting point of the solders to 625 Kelvin. A short comparison and discussion of the different solders is offered.
