Abstract text:
The thermal probe method is a direct and reliable method of measurement, used for establishing the thermal conductivity of soft soils and rocks. The simplicity of the device used for measurement and the fact that it doesn’t alter the local properties of the material, enables this method to be applied also to the construction materials that have similar composition and behavior as the soft soils and rocks. Using the thermal probe allows measurements of the materials inherent thermo-physical properties in short periods of time.
Key Words:
thermal probe method; thermal conductivity; construction materials properties; thermal properties
