The development of a standard for contact transient methods of measurement of thermophysical properties 

Transient methods are often preferred to steady-state methods when testing the thermophysical properties of materials because of they are simple to use, can quickly produce measurements, and can simultaneously test three thermal properties. There are two factors that influence the accuracy of contact transient testing ...

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 ...

Evaluation of thermal and moisture management properties on knitted fabrics and comparison with a physiological model in warm conditions

Through the use of thermal conductivity and moisture related measurements, this article investigates the physical properties of undergarments of different compositions (cotton, polyester, rayon, viscose, etc.). This research is used to determine which types of materials would best be suited for use in sports/day-to-day/...

Thermal conductivity measurement of insulating materials with a three layers device

Outlines the problems with measuring the thermal conductivity of low-density insulating materials and addresses this by proposing a three layer method for the accurate measurement of thermal conductivity. This method involves a sample being placed between two conducting brass plates (one heated via hot plate) ...
