Mechanical and thermo-physical properties of high-density polyethylene modified with talc

High-density polyethylene-talc-carbon black composites were prepared with varying amounts of talc to determine its effect on the thermo-physical properties of the composites. Carbon black was added in a content of 3.5 wt. % because it was previously determined that the mechanical properties of the composites were depreciated at higher loadings. It was found that the addition of talc enhanced the mechanical properties, as well as the thermal conductivity, and thermal diffusivity. The ...

Determination of specific heat capacity by transient plane source

This study developed a model that used a transient plane source (TPS) sensor to measure the specific heat capacity of anisotropic materials. The underside of a sample holder with a diameter of 20 mm, and a height of 5 mm was attached to a Kapton TPS sensor. During measurements, the sample holder was hung inside a steel tube at atmospheric pressure. Results showed that the model underestimated the heat capacity, which suggests ...

Using the TPS method for determining the thermal properties of concrete and wood at elevated temperature

Using the transient plane source (TPS) technique, the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of concrete and wood samples were measured at elevated temperatures. The measured values are compared to established literature values and show good agreement....
