Measuring the Performance of Insulation Materials

This webinar will focus on characterizing the performance of both novel and traditional insulation materials.  Join Adam Harris, Managing Director of C-Therm Technologies, in learning more about application of the Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) method for characterizing the performance of various materials.

Foams and felts are used in a variety of insulation applications and are heavily relied upon for their very low thermal conductivity properties.   In these applications, it is important to know the impact that compression of the material can have on the thermal conductivity.  Typically, if you densify the material this increases the thermal conductivity.  Thus it is important to apply representative conditions for the compaction of the sample in testing the thermal conductivity. Coupling the TCi with C-Therm’s Compression Test Accessory (CTA) allows for testing of materials with the ability to precisely control the levels of compression and densification.

Ceramics also play a vital role in the material world. They are used in everything from buildings and bridges to cookware and jet engines. In most ceramic applications, the thermal properties of the material are considered important performance attributes of the product.  Within the scope of this webinar, we will explore recent works published from Izmir Katip Celebi University in Turkey. The research explores the success of decreasing the thermal conductivity of the ceramics for improved insulation performance by adding waste marble powder to fired clay bricks.

This webinar will be of particular interest to ceramics engineers and materials science researchers focused on improving the insulation quality of materials.
