Green, formaldehyde-free, foams for thermal insulation

This paper presents the idea of flavonoid foams that are manufactured from natural resources rather than formaldehyde-containing tannin-based foams. A TPS instrument measured the thermal conductivity of the foams using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results show that the flavonoid foams are a better choice than tannin-based foams because they have a lower thermal conductivity which makes them more insulative and fire resistant, and they do not release toxic ...

A numerical study on the influence of insulating layer of the sensor on the thermal conductivity measuring accuracy 

In this study, the thermal properties of stainless steel, ceramic, and silica aerogels were numerically calculated and then compared to actual test results. A thermal constants analyser measured the thermal conductivities and thermal diffusivities of the samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the values generated by the numerical simulation were within ±3% of the TPS method values, which verifies the reliability and accuracy of the numerical ...
