         Article Summary: Thermal properties testing was performed on glycerine, composite red-sand bricks, and mercury. The thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity measurements were made at room temperature using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Basis on this paper was concentrated on the theory and experimental conditions for the measurement testing of insulators, fluids, and metals. Researchers also note the simplicity of the TPS technique as well as the capability to work with a wide range of different materials.
