In this post we will look at the thermal conductivity of green wood, more specifically birch from the Swedish west coast. Green wood has a high moisture level and is often allowed to season, or dry, before being used. With the shifting moisture levels, also the thermal transport properties of the wood will change. To [...]
The Thermtest THW-L2 is a thermal conductivity meter based on the Transient Hot Wire method for testing the thermal conductivity of fluids. In this example milk is used to demonstrate the sensitivity of the device. Testing fluids with a THW-L2 is easy and fast. Each measurement is only ca 1 second long and the sensor wire [...]
