Abstract: Through the use of wood shavings as a filler for sand concretes, the authors have been able to improve the thermal properties of the prepared concrete as well as reuse a waste product. The previously used concrete had a higher thermal conductivity and higher density, and through the addition of wood shavings to the concrete mixture, the density and thermal conductivity of the composites have been lowered. The transient plane source (TPS) technique was used for the analysis of the prepared samples.
