Intercomparison of Measurements of the Thermophysical Properties of Polymethyl Methacrylate

The authors used a variety of techniques to determine the thermal properties of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), including thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, specific heat and density. The measurements are performed in the temperature range from -70°C to 80°C. The results from the different techniques used ...

Transient thermal conductivity measurements: comparison of destructive and nondestructive techniques

The author compares some currently existing method of measuring thermal conductivity and elaborates on a couple of newer methods. The pre-existing methods include hot wire and laser flash diffusivity, and the newly introduced methods are the modified how wire (MHW) and transient plane source (TPS) ...


Effect of the addition of wood shavings on thermal conductivity of sand concretes: Experimental study and modelling

Through the use of wood shavings as a filler for sand concretes, the authors have been able to improve the thermal properties of the prepared concrete as well as reuse a waste product. The previously used concrete had a higher thermal conductivity and higher density, ...

An extension to the dynamic plane source technique for measuring thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of dielectric solids

Using the dynamic plane source (DPS) technique, the thermal properties of highly and lowly thermally conducting materials were measured. The theory behind the technique is explained, and three well known materials are analyzed and the accuracy of the method is found to be within 5% of ...
