Standard Reference Data for the Thermal Conductivity of Water

Using a bare and a coated hot-wire apparatus, new data has been collected to determine the thermal conductivity of liquid water along the saturation line. This reference material data was collected with extremely high accuracy so the correlation presented is within revised a previous correlation that is endorsed by IUPAC, making it standard reference data....

The thermophysical characterization of soils

Understanding the thermal properties of soils is important for applications in agronomy and engineering. The aim of this study was to examine the thermal properties of volcanically-derived Chilean soils using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Results showed that thermal conductivity decreased with water content and with increasing amounts of organic carbon. Alternatively, soils with increased concentrations of crystalline compounds exhibited higher thermal conductivities. Results of this paper conclude that ...

The development of a standard for contact transient methods of measurement of thermophysical properties 

Transient methods are often preferred to steady-state methods when testing the thermophysical properties of materials because of they are simple to use, can quickly produce measurements, and can simultaneously test three thermal properties. There are two factors that influence the accuracy of contact transient testing that must be accounted for when developing a standard: measurement time, and the geometry of the sample and the sensor. To demonstrate this point, when ...
