Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was just wondering if it was possible to change the linear expansion (and expansion in volume as volume expansion is three times the linear expansion) of a certain material. The coefficient being;

a = (Final Length - Initial Length)/ (Initial length) * (ΔT)

Is it possible to engineer a material to expand greater at lower temperature levels?
