Experimental investigation on thermal and rheological properties of n-octadecane with dispersed TiO2 nanoparticles 

The thermal and rheological properties of n-octadecane, a phase change material, with dispersed TiO2 nanoparticles were investigated at varying temperatures. The properties were investigated in both the solid and liquid phases, with varying mass fractions of TiO2 nanoparticles. The thermal conductivity was found to be enhanced in all of the composite samples when compared to the thermal conductivity of pure n-octadecane, and the maximum enhancement occurred at 3 wt. % TiO2 in ...

Hygric and thermal properties of hemp-lime plasters

The authors investigate the use of two hemp-lime plasters (Chanvribat hemp-lime plaster (CHLP) and Terrachanvre hemp-lime plaster (THLP)) for their hygric and thermal properties to assess their use as building plasters. It was shown that the two-hemp lime plasters assessed were good thermal insulators and hygric regulators and so they would be a good choice for plaster to improve the hygric and thermal performances of walls so long as they ...

Transient plane source (TPS) technique for measuring thermal transport properties of building materials

Paper that presents a slightly modified version of the early transient plane source technique which allowed the easier measurement of thermal transport properties of solid materials. A series of building materials were tested spanning thermally conductive to thermally insulating materials including extruded polystyrene, polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), stainless steel and aluminum. This modified method allow the measurement of thermal conductivity values from 0.02 W/mK to 200 W/mK....
