Thermal Conductivity Systems

Thermal conductivity (k) is the ability of a material to to transfer heat. Thermal conductivity measuring systems fall into two categories, static and transient. Static or steady state techniques measure thermal conductivity at a given temperature, while transient techniques can measure themral conductivity while the sample is being heated. Laser Flash Analysis or LFA is is a more modern technique used to derive thermal conductivity by measuring a materials' thermal diffusivity.
