Measuring Thermal Conductivity in Geological Applications

Applications in Geological and Geothermal


Characterizing the thermal conductivity of geological samples is a growing area of interest for engineers and researchers in various fields. There are a wide variety of phases that geological samples can be presented in such as clays, soils, and gravels. Due to this diversity, it can be difficult to know which method for measuring thermal conductivity is appropriate. C-Therm’s modular Trident Thermal Conductivity Instrument can be used to characterize an array of geological samples and can be used for geothermal mapping.

This session will focus on the Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) and the Transient Line Source (TLS) methods. The MTPS sensor can be used for solids, liquids, powders, and pastes, while the TLS can characterize the conductivity of granular and viscous materials. As representative conditions are crucial to obtaining accurate data, both sensors can be outfitted with pressure cell accessories. The portability and ease of use of these sensors make them an ideal choice for researchers working in the field.

Join Subject Matter Expert, Arya Hakimian, as he presents various case studies and applications related to measuring the thermal conductivity of geological samples. This webinar is recommended for researchers, engineers, students, and materials scientists who are interested or involved in geology or geothermal processes.

This webinar will air on July 18, 2024 @ 2:00PM GMT-3.
