Thermal conductivity measurement by TPS analyzer 

The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the ability of a transient plane source (TPS) method to measure thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and volumetric heat capacity. Four samples were tested standard steel, linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), LLDPE with 5 wt% graphite composite, and LLDPE with 15 wt% graphite composite. Steel had the highest thermal conductivity because steel has more free electrons then the other materials. LLDPE had a lower thermal conductivity ...


Thermal characterization of nitrates and nitrates/expanded graphite mixture phase change materials for solar energy storage 

Nitrate materials play an important role in the development of latent thermal energy storage (LTES) systems. This paper examined the thermo-physical properties of sodium nitrate, potassium nitrate and their mixtures with expanded graphite (EG) additives for their applications in solar energy storage. The transient hot-wire method measured the apparent thermal conductivities of the nitrates and nitrates/EG mixtures. Results showed that nitrates/EG mixture PCMs with the highest concentrations of ...
