Abstract: This study analyses a mullite ceramic formed through foaming and starch consolidation of mullite powder, and how its thermal conductivity changes with porosity of the ceramic. The thermal conductivity was measured through the Hot Disk transient plane source (TPS) method with the TPS 2500 S. As the porosity of the mullite ceramic increases so does the thermal conductivity.
