Category: Transient Line Source
Abstract: 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 obtained by using wood aggregates. Different weight percentages of wood aggregates (0, 25, 30, 40, 50%) and the thermal conductivity curves are found to be different for each sample.
