Abstract

This paper discusses the design concepts of a thermal property measuring system for laboratory measurements on geologic materials. Topics considered are the pressure vessel, laser-interferometer dilatometer system, the thermal subsystems, and the computer-related data acquisition and control systems. Also discussed are the measurement techniques for thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and linear thermal expansion.
