A Methodology to Determine Thermal Conductivity of Soils from Flux Measurement

This invention relates to a method for determining the thermal conductivity of soil from thermal flux measurement.Method comprises positioning a sample, providing four flux sensors coupled to a plurality of thermocouples; Flux sensors are embedded sequentially from top to bottom throughout the sample, the flux sensors and thermocouples are further connected to a data logger to measure heat flux of soil and computing thermal conductivity from the measured heat flux;Temperature is varied using hot air gun.
