Thermal conductivity measurement of molten indium antimonide in short-duration microgravity 

In this study, a sensor measured the thermal conductivity of molten indium antimonide (InSb) using the transient plane source (TPS) method. The measurements were taken during a 10 m short-duration microgravity drop. Results showed that the thermal conductivities of molten InSb were higher in normal gravity ...

Development of Sensor for Molten Metal, and the Thermal Conductivity Measurement of Molten Bismuth and Tin

The authors measured the thermal conductivity of a couple molten metals, namely bismuth and tin. This was accomplished by using a molybdenum sensor placed in between two aluminum nitride plates (to protect the molybdenum sensor from the high temperature of the molten metals. The thermal ...

Thermal Conductivity Measurement of Molten Silicon in Short-Duration Microgravity Environments

In this article, researchers measured the thermal conductivity of molten silicon. To avoid potential sensor harm, the standard Kapton and nickel foil sensor was swapped for a molybdenum foil, an aluminum nitride plate sensor. The regular Kapton sensor was replaced because of aluminum nitrides high ...

Thermal conductivity measurement of liquid materials by a method in short-duration microgravity environments

In this article, researchers employed the use of the TPS method to test the thermal conductivities of various liquid materials, including mercury and silicone oils of different viscosities, in short-duration microgravity environments. The data received for the lower viscosity silicone liquids displayed extreme effects of ...
