**Keywords:** electrical resistivity, measurement of thermal conductivity, specific heat capacity, thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, transient hot-strip method

**Abstract:** Describes how second-order terms are important to the hot-strip method, and should be included in situations where a high-current pulse is being used. The authors determined approximate values for the coefficients of second-order terms.
