Thermal effusivity testing with the thermal constants analyzer

The Transient Plane Source method (TPS) simultaneously measures thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity. This paper investigates the possibilities of using sensors, to record the thermal effusivity of a substrate. With the original method, the thermal effusivity of uniaxial, homogeneous materials in the through-plane direction can be estimated. Tests were performed to analyze the differences in single-sided vs. double-sided testing. For 1-dimensional samples, where heat flow is controlled along the sample, ...

Reference materials for thermal transport properties

There are three types of reference materials used to verify numerous standard test methods: certified reference material (CRM), transfer standard (TS), and reference material (RM). A qualified reference material must be isotropic, and have reproducible consistency and stability over a wide range of temperatures. Metals and alloys are commonly used reference materials for solids, but they do not extend to lower temperature ranges unlike Pyroceram 9606, which is a popular alternative. ...
