Measuring anisotropic thermal properties of metagranite at different scales

This study outlines the design of a final repository for nuclear waste in bedrock, by the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company. Thermal property testing is required to determine the canister separation distance within the repository. The transient plane source thermal constants analyzer was ...

An experimental study on the inhomogeneities of aluminum foams measuring the thermal conductivity by using the transient plane source method

The production of closed cell foams has recently advanced as the materials gain interest. The purpose of this study was to use the transient plane source (TPS) method to measure the thermal conductivity of AlSi7 closed cell foams. Results showed that thermal conductivity increased with ...

Characterization of anisotropic and irregularly-shaped materials by high-sensitive thermal conductivity measurements

The transient plane source (TPS) technique has a wide range of applications because of its capability to test solids, liquids, powders, and anisotropic materials over a range of sizes. Thermal properties of thin films and coatings can also be characterized using the TPS method if ...

Measuring the thermal properties of green wood by the transient plane source (TPS) technique

In this study, the researchers investigated the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat of four types of wood: beech, birch, spruce and Douglas fir. The main factor influencing the thermal properties of the wood was the moisture content of each sample, which was manipulated ...

Thermal conductivity and diffusivity of wood

Using the TPS method, the authors measured the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of samples of Swedish wood. They also looked at the effect of density, porosity and anisotropy on the measured thermal properties. Both longitudinal and transverse measurements were taken at  temperatures ranging from 20°...
