Thermal conductivity of ceramic green bodies during drying

Thermal conductivity of alumina and kaolin clay were investigated as a function of the water content at different stages of drying compared to linear shrinkage. Thermal conductivities of the samples were measured using the transient plane source methods. Samples were encapsulated in a polyvinyl film ...

Cleaner production of the lightweight insulating composites: Microstructure, pore network and thermal conductivity

A porous matrix was prepared using low-density sawdust and a metakaolin-based geopolymer paste. The matrix was prepared in order to evaluate its performance as a thermally insulating building envelope. The matrices that had approximately 4 MPa of bi-axial four points flexural strength were prepared in a ...

A combined finite-discrete element method for calculating the effective thermal conductivity of bio-aggregates based materials

This study used a two part process to create a system that would predict the thermal conductivity of insulated building materials containing plant materials. A finite-discrete element method was used to predict the thermal conductivity of a packed bed of sunflower pith, while a discrete ...

Effect of the pore volume fraction on the thermal conductivity and mechanical properties of kaolin-based foams

Very porous ceramics were prepared by the direct foaming method containing 79% kaolinite , based on commercial clay. Ceramics were prepared with different pore volume fractions, and the different ceramics were analyzed using the transient plane source (TPS) technique to measure thermal conductivity. Increasing pore volume fraction ...
