Effect mechanism of mixing on improving conductivity of asphalt solar collector

Asphalt solar collector (ASC) is a conductive asphalt concrete and an eco-friendly method to de-ice roadways. This study examined if the addition of conductive fillers and various mixing parameters could improve the thermal conductivity and energy efficiency of ASC. A thermal conductivity system measured the thermal conductivity of the concrete samples using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that thermal conductivity was mostly improved by higher asphalt temperatures, ...

On the use of transient plane source sensors for studying materials with direction dependent properties 

The Transient Plane Source (TPS) Technique measures the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of solids and liquids. An electrically conducting double spiral nickel sensor pulses a current through a sample which increases its temperature, while simultaneously recording the length of time it took for the sample to heat up. This study, researchers tested the thermal properties of various materials and determined that anisotropy must be considered when these ...
