Thermal conductivity measurement by TPS analyzer 

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the ability of a transient plane source (TPS) method to measure thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and volumetric heat capacity. Four samples were tested standard steel, linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), LLDPE with 5 wt% graphite composite, and LLDPE with 15 wt% graphite composite. Steel had the highest thermal conductivity because steel has more free electrons then the other materials. LLDPE had a lower thermal conductivity ...


On the use of transient plane source sensors for studying materials with direction dependent properties 

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 a sample which increases its temperature, while simultaneously recording the length of time it took for the sample to heat up. This study, researchers tested the thermal properties of various materials and determined that anisotropy must be considered when these ...


Recent developments and applications of the thermal constants analyser for measuring thermal transport properties of solids

When thermal conductivity and diffusivity are measured with a thermal constants analyzer, sensors of different designs are being used. Sensors are primarily made of nickel foil, arranged in a double spiral, sandwiched between two thin sheets of insulating material. For experiments between 30 and 450 K, the polyimide Kapton has been used as the insulating material. For experiments being performed at temperatures above 450 K, but below 1000 K, Mica can be used as ...
