SMU Geothermal Lab

Thermal Conductivity

The SMU Geothermal Lab analyzes samples for their thermal conductivity using the following equipment:

• divided-bar thermal conductivity measurement apparatus

• a needle probe measurement device

The ideal raw material for analysis is full core, but conductivity can be also measured from half core or cuttings samples. 

For information on sample analysis and pricing, contact Maria Richards at 214-768-1975 or by email.

Thermal conductivity of some common materials and gases are given on the Engineering ToolBox website.
