Critical Review of Industrial Techniques for Thermal-Conductivity Measurements of Thermal Insulation Materials

The ability of leading thermal conductivity measurement techniques to be applied to the thermal measurement of thermally insulated materials was investigated. Researchers required that the equipment be able to operate between temperatures of 250 and 800°C. The equipment studied included the Transient Plane Source, the laser flash technique, the guarded heat flow meter, the transient hot wire instrument, and the guarded hot plate apparatus. Variables considered by the investigators included price, ...

Thermophysical Properties of Reconsolidating Crushed Salt 

The thermophysical properties of crushed salt were measured as it reconsolidated. The main focus of the work was to determine the thermal conductivity of the salt at temperatures ranging from -75 to 300ºC. It was determined that the thermal conductivity of reconsolidated crushed salt decreased with increasing porosity, but increased as the salt consolidated. At each porosity that was measured, the thermal conductivity was found to decrease with increasing temperature. ...

Intercomparison of Measurements of the Thermophysical Properties of Polymethyl Methacrylate

The authors used a variety of techniques to determine the thermal properties of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), including thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, specific heat and density. The measurements are performed in the temperature range from -70°C to 80°C. The results from the different techniques used to characterize the PMMA (GHP, GHF, TPS, THS) are all compared to see whether they agree with one another....
