Category: Transient Plane Source
Abstract: The authors report on the use of the newly developed transient plane source (TPS) technique for the measurement of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of insulators, fluids and metals. The paper describes the theory and experimental setup used, including the hot disk sensor and how it works. The experimentally obtained values were compared to literature values and showed good agreement.
