This part of ISO 22007 specifies a method for the determination of the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity, and hence the specific heat capacity per unit volume, of plastics. The experimental arrangement can be designed to match different specimen sizes. Measurements can be made in gaseous and vacuum environments at a range of temperatures and pressures.
This method is suitable for testing homogeneous and isotropic materials, as well as anisotropic materials with a uniaxial structure. In general, the method is suitable for materials having values of thermal conductivity, λ, in the approximate range 0,01 W.m−1.K−1 less-than λ less-than 500 W.m−1.K−1 and values of thermal diffusivity, α, in the range 5 × 10−8 m2.s−1 less-than and equal to α less-than and equal to 10−4 m2.s−1, and for temperatures, T, in the approximate range 50 K less-than T less-than 1 000 K.
NOTE The specific heat capacity per unit volume, C, can be obtained by dividing the thermal conductivity, λ, by the thermal diffusivity, α, i.e. C = λ/α, and is in the approximate range 0,2 MJ.m−3.K−1less-than C less-than 5 MJ.m−3.K−1. It is also referred to as the volumetric heat capacity.
The thermal-transport properties of liquids can also be determined, provided care is taken to minimize thermal convection.
