Abstract:

The selection of a heat insulation material for protective structures must take into account a number of thermophysical properties which permit evaluating its quality and determining its area of application. Some of the basic properties of heat insulating materials are thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity. The coefficient of thermal conductivity characterizes the heat protecting properties of the material under conditions of stationary heat conditions and depends on the nature, structure, temperature, volume weight, and moisture content of the material.
