Abstract: This article examined the effective thermal conductivity (ETC) of reactive packed beds made of hydriding materials. In order to properly design a packed bed of hydriding material, it is vital to know its heat transfer characteristics. The transient temperature profile measurement was performed using the transient plane source (TPS) method and the thermal conductivity values of non-reactive (oxidized) and activated Ti1.1CrMn under various hydrogen pressures were determined. The ETC is an important characteristic to measure as it heavily impacts how a hydriding bed regulates heat and mass transfer.
