Description / Abstract:

Project Scope

The project began with a traditional search in the technical literature followed by written and oral communication with experienced thermal conductivity testers and their clients. An abundant set of test data was provided with some information regarding costs and methods. A series of tests were also conducted at a controlled site to supplement the information. Thermal properties were computed using publicly available software and methods developed specifically for this project. This has permitted comparative analysis, impact of uncertainty resulting from measurement error, variations from fundamental assumptions, test procedures, and unavoidable disturbances to the natural formations.
