A simplified approach for predicting temperature profile in steel members with locally damaged fire protection

The structural integrity of steel members is jeopardized when fire insulation is partially lost. This paper examined the thermal and mechanical properties of fire insulation under elevated temperatures to further understand thermal gradients and develop preventative safety measures. A thermal analyzer measured the thermal conductivity ...

Modification of tannin based rigid foams using oligomers of a hyperbranched poly(amine-ester) 

This paper examined the synthesis of hyperbranched polymers (HBPs) and how their hydroxyl end groups help form networks in tannin-based foams. A thermal analyzer (TPS) measured the thermal conductivity of the foam samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that modified foams ...

Thermally insulating and fire-retardant lightweight anisotropic foams based on nanocellulose and graphene oxide

The researchers used an instrument to measure the thermal properties (thermal conductivity and specific heat) of anisotropic thermally insulating foams produced by the mixing of nanocellulose, graphene oxide and sepiolite nanorods via the freeze-casting method. These anisotropic foams showed superior thermal properties when compared to ...

Insulation materials for the building sector: a review and comparative analysis

When referring to maximizing the energy efficiency of a building, one must first look at the contents of the structure: the make-up of the interior and exterior walls and the contents of the buildings envelope. Generally, when we think of insulation, we think of thermal ...
