Abstract: Using the transient plane source (TPS) method, the thermal conductivities of a series of magnesium integral foams have been measured experimentally. The main factor contributing to the thermal conductivity of the magnesium foams is the bulk density. In addition to using the TPS technique, micro-computed tomography (µCT) was used to explain any deviations from expected thermal conductivity.
