Abstract: Using the transient plane source (TPS) technique, simultaneous measurements of thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were taken from phenolformaldehyde (PF) composites, reinforced by pineapple leaf fiber. Testing was done on samples of varying weight percentages. Thermal conductivity of pure fiber was evaluated and compared with the thermal conductivity of the composite fiber.
