A technique for simultaneously measuring thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity was evaluated for applications with insulation materials and liquids. The thermophysical properties are determined from a single, transient measurement. The measurement apparatus employs an encapsulated bead thermistor as the sensing probe. The results from using a glass-encapsulated and a teflon-encapsulated bead thermistor are described.
