A small-plane heat source method for measuring the thermal conductivities of anisotropic materials

This study aimed to develop a new method based on the transient plane source (TPS) technique to simultaneously measure the in-plane and across-plane thermal conductivities of anisotropic insulating materials using one experimental test. It was found from the experimental results of the thermal conductivities of ...

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 ...

A centered hot plate method for measurement of thermal properties of thin insulating materials

The authors present a method for measuring the thermal conductivity and thermal capacity of thin insulating and super-insulating materials. The new method is compared to previously existing methods and elaborates upon why these methods are unacceptable for the measurement of thin insulating materials. The researchers ...

Thermal conductivity measurement of insulating materials with a three layers device

Outlines the problems with measuring the thermal conductivity of low-density insulating materials and addresses this by proposing a three layer method for the accurate measurement of thermal conductivity. This method involves a sample being placed between two conducting brass plates (one heated via hot plate) ...
