Fire Safety Tests for Cesium-Loaded Spherical Resorcinol Formaldehyde Resin: Data Summary Report

Safety tests were conducted on cesium-loaded spherical resorcinol formaldehyde (SRF), resulting in a possible reclassification of the fire safety for the Cesium Ion Exchange Process System (CXP) emergency elution vessels, equipment, and piping. One of these tests was to determine the thermal conductivity using the transient line source technique, as thermal conductivity is a very important quantity for the safe treatment of materials....

Determining thermal properties of gypsum board at elevated temperatures 

Gypsum board is a building material that shrinks and cracks at high temperatures, which compromises the structural integrity of buildings during fires. Researchers in this study set out to determine the behavior of gypsum board when exposed to real fire conditions. A Thermal Constants Analyzer (TPS) measured the thermal conductivity of the gypsum board samples at and above room temperature using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed that ...

Thermal conductivity estimates of intumescent chars by direct numerical simulation

The effective thermal conductivities of fully expanded intumescent chars are estimated using a finite element model related to porosity and density of the chars....
