An empirical model for the thermal conductivity of compacted bentonite and a bentonite–sand mixture

Compacted bentonite and a bentonite–sand mixture have been considered as a potential buffer material for nuclear waste stored underground. The effects of dry density, water content and sand fraction on the thermal conductivity of the mixtures were investigated via data collected with the transient ...

Experimental and numerical study on thermal conductivity of proton exchange membrane

Proton exchange membranes (PEM) are important components of proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) which could potentially substitute fossil energy. The purpose of this study was to theoretically and experimentally study how the thermal conductivity of the PEM, Nafion 117, is related to water content and ...

The thermophysical characterization of soils

Understanding the thermal properties of soils is important for applications in agronomy and engineering. The aim of this study was to examine the thermal properties of volcanically-derived Chilean soils using the Transient Plane Source (TPS) method. Results showed that thermal conductivity decreased with water content ...
