Lightweight clay-based concretes formulated withwood aggregates: hygrothermal behaviour

Insulating materials were made from recycled clay waste using technologies developed by the author were tested for their thermal conductivity using the transient line source technique over a temperature range of 0-60°C. The clay used was mainly composed of kaolinite. A weight reduction was ...

The effect of grain angle and species on thermal conductivity of some selected wood species

Wood can be defined as a composite, porous material as it is effectively made of two different substances. This property is reflective of how differently the wood grows with respect to the four seasons and how the materials in the wood can change based on ...

Thermographic analysis of the thermal properties of wood for wooden windows

Wood is still commonly used to produce window frames in many parts of the world. In this application the orientation of the wood is very important, as its anisotropic properties mean that heat loss could be greatly influenced by how the piece is cut. Manufacturers ...

Thermal conductivity measurements on wood materials with transient plane source technique

The Transient Plane Source thermal constants analyzer stands out in the field of thermal conductivity testing equipment due to its ability to measure anisotropic materials. In this paper, the mathematical derivation of the equation used in the anisotropic software module of the TPS is used ...

Measuring the thermal properties of green wood by the transient plane source (TPS) technique

In this study, the researchers investigated the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat of four types of wood: beech, birch, spruce and Douglas fir. The main factor influencing the thermal properties of the wood was the moisture content of each sample, which was manipulated ...
