Parameter estimation method for flash thermal diffusivity with two different heat transfer coefficients

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Determining thermal diffusivity using flash diffusivity tests at high temperatures is investigated using parameter estimation. One aspect is development of a method for determining two different heat transfer coefficients, one at the heated face and one at the opposite face. Both simulated exact and experimental data are used to illustrate the procedure. Although the heat transfer coefficients are different, assuming identical coefficients in the estimation process does not significantly affect the thermal diffusivity estimates. Insight into estimation of thermal diffusivity and other parameters is obtained from a study of the sensitivity coefficients. Although the thermal diffusivity is the primary parameter ... continued below

Description

Determining thermal diffusivity using flash diffusivity tests at high temperatures is investigated using parameter estimation. One aspect is development of a method for determining two different heat transfer coefficients, one at the heated face and one at the opposite face. Both simulated exact and experimental data are used to illustrate the procedure. Although the heat transfer coefficients are different, assuming identical coefficients in the estimation process does not significantly affect the thermal diffusivity estimates. Insight into estimation of thermal diffusivity and other parameters is obtained from a study of the sensitivity coefficients. Although the thermal diffusivity is the primary parameter of interest, a measured signal proportional to the temperature rise also depends on the heat transfer coefficients and energy input, which are called nuisance parameters (if not of interest). As the temperatures increase above 1500 C, heat losses become very large and greatly influence the temperature response. By using insights from the study of the sensitivity coefficients for each of these parameters, the thermal diffusivity can be estimated despite the large heat losses.
