Insulating materials were made from recycled clay waste using technologies developed by the author were tested for their thermal conductivity using the transient line source technique over a temperature range ...Read More
An inter-comparison of a steady-state and transient methods for measuring the thermal conductivity of thin specimens of masonry materials
The aim of this study was to determine whether steady-state methods were better at measuring thermal conductivities of oven-fired clay masonry materials than transient methods, and vice versa. The Hot ...

Clay aerogels are typically used for insulation, filtration and absorption, and are typically favored because of their eco-friendly nature, low density and high porosity. Unfortunately, these aerogels are limiting due ...Read More
Effect of dispersion capability of organoclay on cellular structure and physical properties of PMMA/clay nanocomposite foams
The authors prepared PMMA/clay composites by the in situ bulk polymerization method. The prepared composites were characterized by FT-IR, WAXRD, SEM, TEM, DMA and the transient plane source (TPS) ...
