When attempting to extract reservoir fluid from rock, the rock is often heated. When the reservoir fluid is hotter it is less viscous and easier to extract. Knowing the thermal ...Read More
The transient line source probe needle has become a very common tool for measuring the thermal conductivities of soils and some rocks. However, field measurements using this technique can be ...

Thermal-physical properties of selected geomaterials: coal, sandstone and concrete based on basic series and parallel models
The purpose of this study was to look at the effective thermal conductivity (ETC) of coking coal, sandstone and foamed concrete existing in extreme thermal environments. Thermal-physical properties were measured ...Read More
A comparative study was conducted on the properties of lightweight cementitious composites (LWCCs) mixed with four types of filler particles; EPS beads, dry-expanded plastic microspheres, hollow glass microspheres, and fly ...Read More
This paper summarizes the measuring method of thermal conductivity of rocks and the parameters controlling the transport and exchange of thermal energy. The Hot Disk transient plane source method was ...Read More
Understanding the thermal properties of soils is important for applications in agronomy and engineering. The aim of this study was to examine the thermal properties of volcanically-derived Chilean soils using ...
