A Study of Thermal Conductivity of Boron-Nitride Epoxy-Matrix Composites

European Conference on Composite Materials (EECM): 15, 2012

K. Gaska, A. Rybak, Cz. Kapusta, R. Sekula, A. Siwek

Thermal conductivity, Transient plane source(TPS), epoxy resins, boron nitride, epoxy composites, epoxy

Having one of the lowest thermal conductivities of all known solid materials, this conference paper assesses the possibility of using filler particles to increase the thermal conductivity of filled epoxy resin. With the effective use of graphs, tables, and photos to explain the experimental procedure and results, the author formats his research in a way that is organized and straightforward, making it an engaging read!

Measurement Techniques for Thermal Conductivity and Interfacial Thermal Conductance of Bulk and Thin Film Materials

Journal of Electronic Packaging (2016), 138(4): 1-64

Dongliang Zhao, Xin Qian, Xiaokun Gu, Saad Ayub Jajja, Ronggui Yang

bulk solid materials, thin films, thermal conductivity, thermal contact resistance, interfacial thermal conductance, laser flash method

This paper looks at some of the most commonly used measurement techniques for thermal conductivity and interfacial contact resistance of bulk and thin films materials. Contrasting the steady-state and transient methods, readers can compare the advantages and limitations of each technique and gain a better understanding of testing procedures and potential error sources.

Simultaneous measurements of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of rock-marbles using transient plane source (TPS) technique

Heat Recovery Systems and CHP (1991), 11(4): 249-254

Izhar-Ul-Haq, N.S. Saxena, Silas E. Gustafsson, A. Maqsood

Thermal conductivity, Transient plane source(TPS), marble, thermal diffusivity, specific heat, stone, building materials

Using the transient plane source technique, marble samples were measured with the thermal conductivity analyzer and compared to results obtained from the transient hot strip method. Published in the 90’s, readers will be able to learn about the theory and evolution of thermophysical properties measurements and appreciate the advantages of the TPS technique!
