Thermal properties measurement of isotropic insulating materials with the Transient Hot Plate method using a 3D semi-analytical model

Abstract

Most of the thermal characterization methods using a uniform heating of a surface (Guarded Hot Plate, Transient Hot Plate, Fluxmeter Method) assume 1D transfer in the measurement area and neglect the in-plane heat transfer in the heating element. This results in limitations regarding the time interval for estimation, the thickness of samples or the possibility of simultaneously measuring thermal conductivity and capacity. To overcome these limits, a new 3D transient analytical model suited to isotropic materials and taking into account the convective lateral heat losses on the periphery of the samples as well as the 3D heat transfers in the heating element has been developed. It is first presented and then validated by comparison with 3D numerical simulations carried out with COMSOL. A study of the reduced sensitivities of the measured temperature to the various parameters and parameters estimations carried out on simulations obtained with the 3D model enable us to define an optimal estimation process. Finally, transient hot plate experiments were carried out on five extruded polystyrene samples with thickness ranging from 9.1 mm to 49.8 mm and on samples of PVC foam, PVC and of the reference anisotropic material IRMM-440. The results validate the theoretical study with a deviation lower than 5% compared to the known values of the thermal conductivity for the isotropic materials when using the 3D model, while the deviation may reach 77% using the1D model for the thickest sample of extruded polystyrene. The deviation reaches 11% for the thermal conductivity of IRMM-440 showing the need for a model taking into account the anisotropy for this type of materials.
