A detailed theoretical investigation of the influence of heat diffusion processes on the low-frequency dispersion in macroscopic elastic susceptibilities is presented. In particular, a general solution of the heat diffusion equation is derived for arbitrary boundary conditions and externally imposed periodic and spatially inhomogeneous stress. In contrast to other calculations found in the literature, our results indicate that in elastic experiments on monodomain samples of macroscopic… 
'Thermal ghosts': apparent decay of fixed surfaces caused by heat diffusion
The behaviour concerning classical heat diffusion on fixed thermal surfaces, studied by observations, still holds surprises. As soon as convective and radiative processes are negligible within the
Low amplitude, low frequency elastic measurements using Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer (DMA) spectroscopy
Abstract The applications of DMA methods for the investigation of the dynamical mechanical properties of materials are reviewed. Experimental details of this method are described including the

The tensor of the elastic stiffness constants Cij of potassium thiocyanate (KSCN) has been measured in the temperature range 290 K to 420 K, including the order-disorder phase transition at 415 K, by
An Analytical Framework for the Study of Solid Body Cooling
This paper aims to study the cooling of a solid body. An analytical analysis of a solid body cooling in different regimes is presented, such as a simple first order exponential model, a modified
Elastic and Dielectric Evaluation of the Piezoelectric Response of Ferroelectrics Using Unpoled Ceramics
The evaluation of the piezoelectric properties of ferroelectric ceramics generally has a high level of uncertainty, due to incomplete poling, porosity, domain wall clamping and other effects. In

Thermal Diffusion Dispersion in Disordered Systems.
A thermal diffusion process is discussed, that should be expected in any system in which the difference in the local susceptibilities χ T -χ S is inhomogeneous, where the superscripts indicate
Heat-diffusion central peak in the dielectric susceptibility of ferroelectric materials.
A phenomenological theory is presented describing the heat-diffusion central peak in the macroscopic ~q50! dielectric susceptibility that results from the Landau free energy and theHeatdiffusion equation and predicts a relaxation in the ferroelectric phase at low frequencies that depends on sample size.
