Description: The coefficient of thermal expansion analysis suite (CTEAS) has been developed to calculate and visualize thermal expansion properties of crystalline materials in three dimensions. The software can be used to determine the independent terms of the second-rank thermal expansion tensor using hkl values, corresponding dhkl listings and lattice constants obtained from powder X-ray diffraction patterns collected at different temperatures. Using CTEAS, a researcher can also visualize the anisotropy of this essential material property in three dimensions. Available from Professor Waltraud M. Kriven (
