Aqueous foams with densities from 0.03 to 0.2 g/cm3 were studied for their thermal conductivity. It is important to determine an aqueous foam's thermal response because it is often ...Read More
A report based on thermal conductivity measurements of samples from 53 of the first 80 ocean drilling project legs. The data was collected, shipboard by collecting the core samples, then pushing a ...Read More
This article describes an attempt to modify the transient line source probe to be useful in making in-situ measurements in the field. The field of construction, as well as many ...
