This book presents the main methods used for thermal properties measurement. It aims to be accessible to all those, specialists in heat transfer or not, who need to measure the thermal properties of a material. The objective is to allow them to choose the measurement method the best adapted to the material to be characterized, and to pass on them all the theoretical and practical information allowing implementation with the maximum of precision.
1. Heat transfer modelling.
2. Tools and methods for thermal characterization.
3. Steady–state methods.
4. Flux/temperature transient methods.
5. Temperature/temperature transient methods.
6. Choice of a method.
7. Analogy between different transfers.
