Thermal Conductivity - ASTM E1530 vs ASTM C177?

Thermal Conductivity - ASTM E1530 vs ASTM C177?

Thermal Conductivity - ASTM E1530 vs ASTM C177?

(OP)
Tested the thermal conductivity of a material using ASTM E1530 and the values obtained are quite different (almost factor of 10) from published values obtained via ASTM C177. Is this discrepancy between the two methods reasonable/typical???  

RE: Thermal Conductivity - ASTM E1530 vs ASTM C177?

I often see TCs with a range of a factor of three from common well established materials.  The test method means everything with TC.  Find more published data and re-do your tests.

Thanks EdStainless. Do you have any experience in deciding which test method to use? Any guidance you might provide is appreciated.

RE: Thermal Conductivity - ASTM E1530 vs ASTM C177?

ASTM C177 is an easy way to achieve thermal conductivity where ASTM E 1530 is little stringent. I have results of thermal conductivity of composites using both the methods and they are very much similar.
