Assessment of hydrothermal performance by thermophysical characterization of a crimped glass wool building insulation

Insulation is a vital component in the construction industry, notably in this study, glass wool. Maximizing the hydrothermal performance of glass wool is key when dealing with water vapor, humidity and permeability. Although insulation does not generally come in contact with liquids, it is important to consider all outcomes, with likelihood of accidents occurring and the varying levels of workmanship. The transient technique was employed to thermally characterize glass wool ...


One-pot synthesis, characterization and properties of acid-catalyzed resorcinol/formaldehyde cross-linked silica aerogels and their conversion to hierarchical porous carbon monoliths

Aerogels are ultra-light, insulative, porous materials that have a wide variety of applications. The aim of this study was to synthesize resorcinol/formaldehyde (RF) cross-linked silica aerogels in one pot by acid catalysis. A thermal constant analyzer measured the thermal conductivity of the RF/SiO2 aerogels using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that although the RF/SiO2 aerogels had a lower density, their thermal conductivities resembled those ...
