Using transient plane source sensor for determination of thermal properties of vacuum insulation panels

Researchers at the Chalmers University of Technology used the transient plane source (TPS) method to propose a technique for testing layered materials of a low conductive core, coated in a highly conductive thin film. The accuracy of the method to evaluate isotropic materials was tested prior to testing the ability of the TPS to analyze layered materials. Value differences were noted between the simulated and the measured temperature increases of ...

Experimental and numerical investigation of form-stable dodecane/hydrophobic fumed silica composite phase change materials for cold energy storage

A new composite phase change material for cold thermal energy storage applications is described in this paper. The authors combined dodecane into hydrophobic fumed silica to create a form stable PCM. Physical characteristics were studied using scanning through electron micrographs and Fourier transformation infrared. A thermal analyzer was used to measure the thermal conductivity of the composite, which was a desired low value needed for this type of application. An ...
