Determining the thermal conductivity of liquids. Part II: Establishing an accurate and repeatable experimental methodology

The authors state that the TPS technique isn't an accurate method for the measurement of thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and volumetric heat capacity of liquids. This is due to the effects of natural convection caused by the sensor which introduce a significant error in the ...

Determining the thermal conductivity of liquids using the transient plane source method. Part I: Establishing transient thermal-fluid constraints

The authors look into problems with accurately measuring thermal conductivity of liquid samples. Among these problems is the onset of natural convection during the measurement of thermal properties, which may lead to skewed values reported after characterization. The effect of natural convection is analyzed numerically ...
