Improving speed and precision of using guarded heat flow technique to measure thin specimens

This paper introduces a compensation algorithm and a different-layers calibration method that will improve the temperature measurement speed and thermal resistance elimination of a guarded heat flow meter instrument. Without these additions to the method, heat will travel through a thin slice of material too ...

Thermal Analysis of LED Heat Sinks by High-Vacuum Die Casting (HVDC)

Lightweight LED heat sinks were fabricated by high-vacuum die casting (HVDC) using the aluminum alloy ADC12. Thermal characteristics of the heat sink were determined under natural convection using thermocouples and an IR thermograph, and the thermal conductivity was measured using the transient plane source (TPS) ...

A simple dynamic measurement technique for comparing thermal insulation performances of anisotropic building materials

The authors have presented a review of steady-state and transient measurement techniques for the determination of thermal conductivity, and have introduced a new method for the determination of thermal transport properties in anisotropic building materials, known as the dynamic adiabatic technique. It was found that ...

Distributed Thermal Response Test on a Grouted U-pipe Borehole Heat Exchanger

The goal of this masters thesis was to better understand the factors affecting the performance of geothermal heat pumps. A new method (Distributed Thermal Response Testing) of determining the ground thermal conductivity and thermal resistance around a borehole from filed data was tested. In order ...
