Abstract: The thermal conductivities of refractory materials often used in the glass production industry were evaluated experimentally. The transient plane source technique was used for the thermal conductivity testing. Specifically, the single-sided method was used to avoid destroying the refractory materials. The thermal conductivity was measured at various locations and it was discovered that there was a variation in thermal conductivity between the hot and cold faces of the brick.
