Abstract

A new unsteady heat flux method is proposed to measure thermal conductivity and diffusivity simultaneously, the principle based on an analytical solution for an infinite hollow cylindrical system with a periodic heat source in the center. Thermal conductivity and diffusivity are determined from the amplitude and phase lag of the temperature response within the cylinder. The method also makes it easy to measure the temperature dependency of thermal properties during a continous heating process. The measurement errors caused by the finite specimen size and the displacement of the thermocouple location are estimated numerically to confirm the accuracy of the measurement method. Effective thermal conductivity and diffusivity for the packed beds of aluminum oxide particles and potassium perchlorate particles are measured. The thermophysical properties measured by this method agree well with those measured by conventional methods such as the hot-wire, periodic heating, and continuous heating methods.
