Abstract: Through the use of experimental (one-sided TPS technique) and theoretical (MD simulations) methods, the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of methane hydrate was studied. Varying concentrations of methane hydrate were studied. The effect of pressure on the thermal properties of methane hydrate was also studied and didn't have a significant effect on the measurement of thermal conductivity. The results obtained from the experimental and theoretical methods agreed well with each other.
