Simultaneous Estimation and Modeling of Thermophysical Properties of Big-Eyed Tuna and Pacific Cod

Extreme care must be taken regarding the proper processing and storage of market seafood the correct amount of heat transfer with occur in order to deliver healthy and fresh tasting food. Measurements of the thermal conductivities of big-eyed tuna and pacific cod were taken with a modified transient line source probe method in a temperature range of 5 - 50°C. Accurate predictions are ...

Thermo-physical properties of multi-component Se78-xTe20Sn2Pbx chalcogenide glasses

The Transient Plane Source (TPS) technique was used to evaluate the thermal transport characteristics (such as thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, specific heat per unit volume) in multi-component Se78-xTe20Sn2Pbx glasses at room temperature. From the experimental results, it was noted that thermal conductivity decreased with lead (Pb) content in the ternary Se78Te20Sn<...

Simultaneous measurements of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of rock-marbles using transient plane source (TPS) technique

Knowing the thermophysical properties of insulating building materials is essential in understanding heat loss. In this study, the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of five marble samples were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) technique and compared to results obtained through the transient hot strip (THS) method. The TPS technique is nearly twenty times the initial resistance of the THS method and does not require small sample sizes or ...

Analysis of Inter-laboratory Testing of Non-loadbearing Gypsum/Steel-Stud Wall Assemblies 

This report details a project undertaken in 2006 and 2007 to verify the fire rating of gypsum wall/steel stud assemblies. Samples were sent to six different fire testing laboratories and tested in 10 different furnaces. All of the laboratories returned ratings of 1-h for the samples. Researchers measured the thermal conductivity and specific heat of the gypsum wall samples at room temperature. Measurements were taken with both the paper in place and ...

Thermophysical properties of polyurethane foams and their melts

The thermal conductivity and specific heat of seven different polyurethane foams and their melts were investigated using the Transient Plane Source. The thermal conductivity of the foams themselves ranged between 0.048 and 0.050 W/mK, while the thermal conductivity of the melt product was 0.186 to 0.200 W/mK, a difference of 300%. Melting had the opposite effect on the specific heat of the samples, which dropped 20% from a range of 2359 to 2996 J/kgK to 1958 ...
