The C177 rig and LabVIEW code

Thermal Conductivity Testing

Red Core Consulting operates a system that measures the thermal conductivity of materials. The system complies with the current C177 standard of the American Society of Test and Measurment (ASTM), and the ISO 8302 standard. These standards are recognized globally as giving absolute measures of thermal conductivity, and are more fundamental than the ASTM C518 standard.

The system is a double-sided guarded hot-plate design, and is currently unavailable for use. We expect operations to recommence in Spring 2016.
