THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY INVESTIGATIONS OF MOIST SOILS
AbstractThe results have been presented in this paper of thermal conductivity investigations of specific type of clay and loess within the range of temperatures from -15 to +25°C at moisture content values of up to 20% and at various weight by volume values.The thermal conductivity at temperatures above 0°C has been determined in the Bock apparatus and with the application of the thermal regular regime method as well as in a miniaturized hot plate apparatus; the thermal conductivity in frozen soils has been determined in the miniaturized hot plate apparatus.The results obtained have permitted a determination of thermal conductivity values as a function of moisture, temperature and weight by volume of specimens tested.
