Transient plane source technique for measurement of thermal conductivity of U and T91 for fast reactor application 

Thermal conductivity is one of the most important properties of fuel and cladding material. In this study, the thermal conductivity of uranium and T91 steel were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of T91 increased gradually to a point, then decreased. Fast reacting cladding materials require high thermal conductivities, and T91 was found to have higher conductivities than other commercial materials. As ...

Measurement of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of solid materials using a novel stamp sensor: A feasibility study with numerical analysis

The transient plane source (TPS) method is a popular technique that is used to measure the thermal properties of solids. The TPS method is widely used because it can test a variety of materials, it is easy to set up, and measurements are non-invasive. A downside of the TPS method is that it requires two homogenous samples, unlike invasive contact-probe techniques. This study proposes the idea of a “stamp sensor”, ...
