Effect of heat transfer in the impulse method on the measurement of thermophysical properties

  • 19 Accesses


The paper considers the effect of heat transfer in the impulse method of measurement on the value of the maximum temperature and on the time for achieving its half-value. Taking this heat transfer effect into account increases the accuracy of measuring the thermophysical properties.
