As technology advances, so must our methods. One of the most important aspects when working with physical instruments is to maintain heat flow in the desired direction. The hot disk ...Read More
On the use of transient plane source sensors for studying materials with direction dependent properties
Author(s):Transient Plane Source
The Transient Plane Source (TPS) Technique measures the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of solids and liquids. An electrically conducting double spiral nickel sensor pulses a current through ...

Thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity analyses of low-density polyethylene composites reinforced with sisal, glass and intimately mixed sisal/glass fibres
The thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of SRP (sisal-reinforced polyethylene), GRP (glass-reinforced polyethylene), and GSRP (sisal/glass hybrid fibre-reinforced polyethylene) were tested from 120 to 350K. Results showed variances in thermal ...
