Using Laminar Flow to measure Thermal Conductivity

  1. May 28, 2015 #1
    So, there's a project I'm working on (no, it's not school related), where I'm trying to figure out how to measure thermal conductivity of a material using laminar flow. The idea is to integrate this into a larger system, and it's a measurement I'd like to take in the process.

    I know the Nusselt Number formula has conductivity in it, and I know there was another formula somewhere that was [(ro)*Cp]/k, but I honestly can't remember what it was.

    Any help, or tips to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
