Linear Heat Conduction Apparatus. Linear Heat Conduction Apparatus
A small-scale accessory that
allows experimental investigation of linear heat conduction and the
measurement of the thermal conductivity of various solid conductors and
An insulated, 25mm diameter brass heated section and
cooling section that may be either clamped together, or assembled with
one of four insulated intermediate sections or test specimens between
The hot end uses a nominal 65W heater (operating
at 240v maximum), which is fitted with a high temperature limit
switch. The power supplied to the heater is controlled and measured by
the Heat Transfer Service Unit .
The cold section is of
identical dimensions to the hot end and is water-cooled. Both the heated
and cooled ends are each fitted with three thermo couples at 15mm
intervals to measure the temperature gradients along the bars.
