A combined finite-discrete element method for calculating the effective thermal conductivity of bio-aggregates based materials

This study used a two part process to create a system that would predict the thermal conductivity of insulated building materials containing plant materials. A finite-discrete element method was used to predict the thermal conductivity of a packed bed of sunflower pith, while a discrete ...

Structure and properties of rigid foams derived from quebracho tannin

Rigid foams were prepared using quebracho tannins and their physical and thermal properties were determined experimentally. These properties were then compared to those of rigid foams derived from mimosa tannins and pine tannins to determine if the nature of the flavonoid affects the properties of ...

Thermal Conductivity of Saturated Samples

This article is an excellent showcase of the ability of the TPS to measure the thermal conductivity of saturated samples. The author compares the thermal property measurement of dry and wet (40% by wet weight) building materials. The fast test time of the TPS enables it ...


Thermal energy storage and release of a new component with PCM for integration in floors for thermal management of buildings

A composite phase change material (PCM) was formulated from commercial blended paraffin and a styrene-butadiene-styrene block. The thermo-physical properties of this composite PCM were then evaluated using the transient plane source method and differential scanning calorimetry. It was determined that there was a significant difference ...
