Abstract

This paper presents measurements of the specific heats of various powders, including nylon, ABS, PVC, and two kinds of wax. An unsteady-state conduction technique is also presented for measuring the thermal conductivities of these powders at temperatures below those where sintering occurs. Both specific heats and thermal conductivities are found to be functions of temperature.
