ABSTRACT:
The project demonstrates the use of fin analysis as one of the possible ways for determination of thermal conductivity of material. In the experimental set-up, a suitably designed oil reservoir is used as a heat source. An Aluminium rod is used as reference material and the provision is made in the reservoir to attach a test rod of which thermal conductivity is to be determined. A Multipole Digital Temperature indicator with four PT-100 thermocouples are used to measure the temperatures. The geometries of the test and reference rods are mandatory to be exactly same for analysis. A small software package “THERMOSOFT” is developed using Visual Basic 6.0 in which the temperature readings are to be entered manually to get the thermal conductivity of test material.
