Simultaneous measurement of thermophysical properties of tissue-mimicking phantoms for high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) exposures 

High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a new noninvasive method for treating certain tumors. Tissue mimicking phantoms are used to test HIFUs because it provides real time visualization of HIFU induced lesion evolution, and can calibrate the HIFU transducers. This study investigates the thermophsyical properties ...

Moisture fixation and thermal properties of lime-hemp concrete

Lime-hemp concrete (LHC) is a sustainable construction material with a low environmental impact. In this study, the thermal properties of two lime-hemp mixes with varying levels of hemp were measured to analyze the material’s ability to be used on a larger scale in cold ...

Structure and physical properties of EVA/starch precursor materials for foaming applications

Synthetic polymers in starch-based polymer formulations improve the thermal and mechanical properties of the compounds. The purpose of this study was to develop and analyze foams containing ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and varying concentrations of corn starch. A Thermal Constants Analyser measured the thermal conductivity of ...

Development of a thermal test object for the measurement of ultrasound intracavity transducer self-heating

Intracavity transducers are probes used in early pregnancy scans. To ensure the transducers do not exceed the maximum temperature threshold when in close contact with embryonic and fetal tissues, a thermal test object (TTO) was designed to measure the temperature of the transducers when in ...

Using ANNs in calibrating the measurements of a simplified hot-plate method 

In this paper, the simplified hot-plate method (SHOP) measured the thermal conductivity of a prototype instrument, and artificial neural networks (ANNs) were employed to confirm the results. The goal of this paper was to produce ANNs to calibrate and improve the accuracy of SHOP thermal ...
