Use of a Pre-Drilled Hole for Implementing Thermal Needle Probe Method for Soils and Rocks

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 difficult with densely packed soil and rock, as the process of inserting the probe can ...

Thermal probe technology for buildings: the transition from laboratory to field measurements

This article describes an attempt to modify the transient line source probe to be useful in making in-situ measurements in the field. The field of construction, as well as many others would benefit if a new thermal probe could be applied to uncontrolled environments. Three ...

An empirical model for the thermal conductivity of compacted bentonite and a bentonite–sand mixture

Compacted bentonite and a bentonite–sand mixture have been considered as a potential buffer material for nuclear waste stored underground. The effects of dry density, water content and sand fraction on the thermal conductivity of the mixtures were investigated via data collected with the transient ...

Thermal Conductivity, Anomaly in Temperature-dependence for Liquids

The transient line source technique was used to take thermal conductivity measurements over the entire liquid range of toluene at 1atm. Unlike any other liquid (with the exception of water) the thermal conductivity was not completely a linear function of temperature. Instead, there was an ...

Effect of cooking and drying on the thermal conductivity of rice

Testing of thermal properties of foods is essential for operation and control of food processing plants. In this paper, the thermal conductivity of rice and the drying of cooked rice is measured. These measurements are determined using a transient line source over a temperature range ...
