Heat flow

  1. Jun 24, 2010 #1
    I would like to test the thermal conductivity of r wall by

    K=Q*d/ A (t2-t1)

    K =conductivity
    A= area

    Q= heat flow

    my problem how I could simulate heat in my experiment and how I will measure the heat flow?

    could you please help me.
    Kind regards

    By heating the material which you know its heat conductivity if you can provide good experience by close the transmission heat loss to zero.
