Measuring the thermal properties of green wood by the transient plane source (TPS) technique

In this study, the researchers investigated the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat of four types of wood: beech, birch, spruce and Douglas fir. The main factor influencing the thermal properties of the wood was the moisture content of each sample, which was manipulated ...

Low Thermal Conductivity Coatings for Gas Turbine Applications

Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) are plasma sprayed onto gas turbine parts in order to improve combustion efficiency and component life time. Two TBC are looked at in this report: yttria partially stabilized zirconia (YPSZ) and dysprosia partially stabilized zirconia (DyPSZ). Both the TPS and laser ...

Transient thermal conductivity measurements: comparison of destructive and nondestructive techniques

The author compares some currently existing method of measuring thermal conductivity and elaborates on a couple of newer methods. The pre-existing methods include hot wire and laser flash diffusivity, and the newly introduced methods are the modified how wire (MHW) and transient plane source (TPS) ...


Thermal Properties of Graphene: Applications in Thermal Interface Materials

Using few-layer graphene (FLG) flakes the authors are able to create graphene composites (where graphene is a filler) and measure the thermal properties of these composites using a laser flash technique. In some cases, the thermal conductivity was increased by ten times while only using 5 ...

Thermal properties of the optically transparent pore-free nanostructured yttria-stabilized zirconia

Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) was synthesized by the spark plasma sintering process to generate pore-free, homogenous bulk samples that were then tested for thermal conductivity, which was measured by two separate methods: TPS and LFT. The TPS method was found to be better for measuring of ...
