Thermal contact resistance and thermal conductivity of oil – new application notes
In our application section we have now added two new notes!
The first deals with thermal contact resistance, using a stack of high conducting copper as an example. With the Hot Disk method it is easy to test the thermal conductivity through a stack and at the same time in the layers of a stack – all from a singel transient. This makes it possible to evaluate contact resistance between layers.
The second case discusses testing the thermal conductivity of liquids. Here an in-depth evaluation of the thermal conductivity of silicone oil is presented. How to perform such tests is explained and hints on how to test other liquids are shared.
