Transient plane source technique for measurement of thermal conductivity of U and T91 for fast reactor application 

Thermal conductivity is one of the most important properties of fuel and cladding material. In this study, the thermal conductivity of uranium and T91 steel were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of T91 increased gradually to a point, then decreased. Fast reacting cladding materials require high thermal conductivities, and T91 was found to have higher conductivities than other commercial materials. As ...

Reducing thermal contact resistance using a bilayer aligned CNT thermal interface material

Thermal Interface Materials (TIMs) are used in the field of electronics, to reduce the thermal contact resistance between the heat sink and heat source, to improve heat dissipation within the electronic device. In this experiment, researchers created a TIM by synthesizing Carbon Nano-Tubes (CNTs) on both sides of a thin copper foil. To test the thermal conductivity of the foil with this enhancement, the transient plane source method was employed. ...

Parameter estimations for measurements of thermal transport properties with the thermal constants analyzer

This article analyzes the basic criteria for determining experimental times to use in thermal conductivity experiments, using the thermal constants analyzer. Researchers have determined an interval to which test times correlate, for accurate thermal conductivity and diffusivity results. During this research, scientists also determined the possibility of testing both thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity from one single measurement. Throughout this experiment, the researchers also expanded on the theory, calculations and ...
