Heat transfer in fibrous materials

Research output: Book/ReportReport


This report presents theories and measurements of the mechanisms af heat transfer in fibrous materials (e.g. insulation of mineral wool type), and measurements of these mechanisms. The present work is part af a larger research program at the Division of Building Technology, Lund Institute of Technology, for investigating the behaviour of fibrous material as thermal insulation. A preliminary version of this report was published in Swedish in 1970.
