Heat transfer mechanisms in highly porous fibrous insulation from vacuum to high pressures -- experiment and modeling
Highly porous fibrous ceramics are widely used as insulating materials in thermal systems due to their high temperature limits and light weight. An experimental apparatus, using the radial flow method, has been developed to evaluate heat transfer in highly porous fibrous ceramic materials. The experimental apparatus is constructed and instrumented to evaluate an insulation specimen at pressure ranges from 0.005 < P < 30 bar of pressure and for temperatures ranging from 300 - 1273 K. The design, construction, and instrumentation of the experimental apparatus are reported as well as validation of ...
