This study was aimed at the development of an accurate thermal contact resistance and thermal conductivity measurement system that was simple enough to be constructed and operated by multiple users. A method based on Fouriers Law of Conduction was developed. The purpose of this device is to analyze component interfaces and advanced material applications within Department of Defenses energy systems to improve fuel efficiency and performance.
