This service provides testing to determine thermal resistivity (ρ), thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of challenging solid, granular, or liquid materials.
For liquids, solids, and small grain particles, we use test methods ASTM D5334-05 and IEEE 442-1981. A specially designed steady state thermal apparatus is used for more difficult large particle samples, such as gravels and aggregate materials. For more information, view this application note.
Specify Testing Conditions
Samples can be evaluated over a wide range of temperatures, from -40 to +100°C (depending on sample type). In porous media (like soils), thermal properties can be measured at specified water content ranging from oven dry to saturation, and at specified material density.
Most samples can be analyzed within two weeks of receipt of material at Decagon. Contact Decagon (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or quotes for specific services.
