Abstract: In this study, a modification to the transient hot-strip (THS) method demonstrated that the thermal properties of two different materials can be measured simultaneously when placed on either side of the hot-strip sensor. Three experiments tested samples of gabbro with a regular THS sensor, a wood sensor, and a fused quartz sensor, respectively. The accuracy of the results was better than 3% between each measurement. Despite a large difference in the thermal properties between the THS probe and sample material, good results were obtained because the probes had lower thermal diffusivities than the samples.
