Abstract: This article examined the effects of using the traditional vertical orientation method versus the single-sided horizontal method for transient thermal conductivity measurements of water, glycol, and methanol. It aimed to understand whether the single-sided horizontal method was effective at suppressing the onset of natural convection during the tests. From the analyses, it was seen that the proposed single-sided horizontal method can effectively suppress the onset of natural convection during the measurements.
