Estimation of the thermal properties of hardened cement paste on the basis of guarded heat flow meter measurements

A new analysis method based on the guarded heat flow meter apparatus is proposed to measure the thermal properties of cement-based pastes in a hydrated form. In a steady state, a specimen with 0.4 water-to-cement ratio was found to have a thermal conductivity and a thermal ...

Intercomparison of Measurements of the Thermophysical Properties of Polymethyl Methacrylate

The variability within the results presented from the guarded hot-plate (GHP) and guarded heat-flow meter (GHF) methods was determined. Multiple thermal properties of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) were analyzed to compare methods. These measurements are taken in the range of −70◦C and +80◦C. Providing reference data ...

Effects of melting temperature and the presence of internal fins on the performance of a phase change material (PCM)-based heat sink

Two organic phase change materials (PCMs) were investigated to determine their effects on the thermal management capabilities of electronics. The thermo-physical properties of n-eicosane and 1-hexadecanol were determined experimentally, and the two PCMs were then added to unfinned, and finned heat sinks. It was determined ...

Thermal Properties of a Hercynian Granitic Rock: Data from a Deep Borehole (Almeida, Central Portugal)

Thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat are investigated for a granite rock sample from a deep borehole in central Portugal. Thirty-three samples were divided into two groups based on the degree of metasomatic alteration. It was found that the average thermal conductivity for the ...

Increasing the Service Life of Bridge Decks by Incorporating Phase-Change Materials to Reduce Freeze-Thaw Cycles

The effects of incorporating phase change materials (PCMs) into concrete on the potential service lives of bridges were investigated. It was determined that PCMs could potentially be used in the future to reduce the effects of freeze-thaw cycles on bridges, but more work needed to ...
