Abstract

The contributions from conduction, convection, and radiation for an end-heated aluminum rod were quantified with experimental considerations in mind. Multiple experiments were carried out to ascertain various physical properties of the system and the aluminum rod. By applying heat-flow theory, simulations, and data-fitting techniques, the specific heat capacity, conductivity, emissivity, convective heat transfer coefficient of the system, and thermal contact resistance between the power source and aluminum rod were determined.
