Abstract

A new calorimeter has been developed [1] to determine the effective thermal conductivity of high-performance insulation (HPI) as a function of temperature. Such a device is needed because HPI thermal conductivity is strongly temperature dependent. A knowledge of the thermal conductivity is essential when designing a system using the material
