The transient hot wire method (THW) is a very popular, accurate and precise technique to measure the thermal conductivity of gases, liquids, solids, nanofluids and refrigerants in a wide temperature and pressure range. The technique is based on recording the transient temperature rise of a thin vertical metal wire with infinite length when a step voltage is . A method and apparatus for determining the bulk thermal conductivity of a particular material includes the steps of embedding a thermistor in the material for which the bulk thermal conductivity is to be measured, applying a small current from a constant current source to the thermistor, mathematically determining the temperature of the material, applying a larger Cited by:

Although the current apparatus is designed principally for measurements of the thermal conductivity of liquids, it can been used for gas-phase measurements, with some decrease in accuracy due to the somewhat larger heat capacity correction which must be applied to the temperature rise by: A Transient Hot Wire Thermal Conductivity Apparatus for Fluids* Hans M.

A new apparatus for measuring the thermal conductivity of fluids is described. This is an absolute method utilizing a transient hot wire. Measurements are made with a m diameter platinum wire at real times of up to 1 second. The data acquisition system includes a minicomputer and a digital voltmeter.

With the transient-hot-wire method, the thermal conductivity is determined on the basis of the increase in the temperature of a substance over time when it is heated by a thin hot wire. The heating wire is located directly in the test sample.

The construction and operation of an apparatus to measure the thermal conductivity of gases and gas mixtures, by using the transient hot-wire technique, is described.

years ago scientists were using a crude version of this method to make the first ever thermal conductivity measurements on gases. The main objective of this master’s thesis was to measure the thermal conductivity of compounds in their gaseous state, according to the transient hot-wire method.

For the calibration of the apparatus, the thermal conductivity of nitrogen was measured, and the results were subsequently compared with values from the literature (NIST). Abstract. The proposed apparatus is designed to determine simultaneously a series of thermal properties of liquids and gases, namely, thermal conductivity λ, heat capacity per unit volume C p ρ (C p is the specific heat at constant pressure and ρ is the density), and consequently thermal diffusivity α = λ/(C p ρ) and the thermal activity coefficient \(\b = \lambda /\sqrt a = \sqrt Cited by: 4.

Thermal conductivity. Thermal conductivity is a measure of how well or poorly a material conducts heat. The rate of heat flow (\dot Q) through a material can be determined by the following equation. In this equation, \(\Delta x\) denotes the thickness of the material along which the heat flows and \(A\) refers to the area through which the heat passes.

The construction and operation of an apparatus to measure the thermal conductivity of gases and gas mixtures, by using the transient hot-wire technique, is described.

Transient Hot Wire and Hot Strip Method Most thermal conductivity measurements of liquids, gases and powders are carried out by means of the tran-sient hot wire method, a modification of the steady-state pipe method with a cylindrical specimen geometry and radial heat flow.
