Recorded Webinars

Webinar on Thermal Conductivity & Resistance of Polymers & Composites

Thermal Conductivity and Thermal Resistance Testing of Polymers and Composites with Guarded Heat Flow Meter

For the measurement of non-homogenous and layered materials, thermal conductivity results calculated from measured thermal resistance is the preferred method. A comparison of thermal conductivity ASTM / ISO standards and investigative testing will be presented to explain why this is the case.

Webinar-TPS-EFF measurement of moisture wicking fabric

Measuring the Effects of Moisture Wicking Fabrics and Thermal Effusivity​​

In this webinar featuring Moisture Wicking Fabrics, we discuss our findings on the effects of moisture wicking fabrics and cool feel performance wear using the Thermal Effusivity Meter (TPS-EFF). Our focus is determining if the TPS-EFF can assist in selecting cool feel materials to be used in athletic wear with varying moisture levels.

Webinar on Thermal Conductivity of Soil and Concrete

Thermal Conductivity of ​Soil and Concrete using the Transient Line Source Technique​

Discussing the measurement of the thermal conductivity and resistivity of soil and concrete using the transient line source technique. The transient line source (TLS) is an ideal and standardized method for testing materials in-situ and in the lab. Thermtest’s TLS-100 is an easy-to-use and affordable instrument used for testing soil, rocks, concrete, and polymers.


Thermal Conductivity of Heat Transfer Fluids using the Transient Hot-Wire Technique

Discussing the benefit of using the Transient Hot-Wire (THW) method for heat transfer fluids such as ethylene glycol and water. Transient Hot-Wire (THW) is the primary method for the measurement of thermal conductivity of fluids, nanofluids and pastes because of the wide range of applications, its high accuracy and repeatability. – Presented by: Dr. Sofia Mylona, Transient Hot-Wire technique Expert
