A Decagon Devices Em-5b data-logger was atsm to collect the water content and temperature isothermal chamber data. Aztm, care must be taken to prevent significant error from: Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Since Fourier published the Theorie Analytique de la Chalour, many authors have presented several scientific works related to the thermal properties of soil, as Carslaw and Jaeger [ 1 ] and DeVries [ 2 ] for instance.

Others aspects taken into account were the quantity of observations, and the number of measurements for each observation. This is because it is not possible for the system to reach the equilibrium.

Therefore, for a silt loam soil, the thermal resistivity R showed a gradual decrease insofar as water content increased [ 5 ]. Mean total organic carbon content was about 3. To determine the thermal properties, two thermal sensors, one small dual-needle sensor SH-1 and one single needle sensor TR-1 were employed.

It also uses special algorithms to separate out the effects of the heat pulse from ambient temperature changes. Each scenario means one group class of soil moisture defined by FDR probe. Similar results were showed by Al Nakshabandi and Kohnke [ 6 ] with the same type of soil textural class. Download as PowerPoint Slide Larger image png format. The experiment showed several interesting features.


This work presents the first stadium towards the development of a laboratory and field methodology to obtain reliability, accuracy and rapidity in the analytical dataset of thermal properties in porous media. This method is applicable for both, unaltered and repacked soil specimens, which are suitable only for isotropic materials.

Soil Survey Staff, Campbell, both from Decagon Devices for their help and for their fruitful discussions. Measurement of thermal properties and water content of unsaturated sandy soil using dual-probe heat-pulse probes.

These are the volumetric specific heat capacity, the thermal conductivity and the thermal diffusivity.

The first step in developing a protocol to measure the thermal atm of soil begins for the field sampling design, i. Results and Discussion 4.

Thermal conductivity of soil. Thermal properties are strongly influenced by physical properties such as bulk density, water content, particle-size distribution, and structural arrangement.

It uses special algorithms to analyze measurements made during a heating and a cooling interval. The thermal data were collected using a KD2-Pro reader-logger. Afterwards, thermal sensors were placed in two asgm positions, vertically and horizontally and left up to reach the steady state conditions for each scenario or water content.

On the other hand, the TR-1 sensor only measures the thermal resistivity and the inverse thermal conductivity. On the other hand, KS-1 thermal sensor is strongly not recommended for these types of samples, since KS-1 is only useful and recommended to measuring thermal conductivity in liquids. To wet up the sample, we use two different techniques; i dynamic technique, where thermal properties and water content measurements are taken as water rises by capillarity from the bottom of the column; and ii static technique, where measurements are taken after water was added to the soil, mixed thoroughly and repacked.

This type of thermal sensor estimates the three thermal properties; i. Volume fraction of air was calculated once water content and particle density were known, since the sum of the volume fraction is 1.

The thermal resistivity obtained with the dynamic wetting d533 always presented higher thermal resistivity on the whole of the dry out curve values than obtained by static technique.

This test method is suitable only for homogeneous materials. Thermal sensor TR-1 measured every 15 minutes, and it used 2 minutes to perform every determination. Generalized relationships for estimating soil thermal resistivity.

A Laboratory Procedure to Determine the Thermal Properties of Silt Loam Soils Based on ASTM D

Influence of the hysteretic behaviour on silt loam soil thermal properties. Abstract Nowadays, there are three variables measured for the characterization of the thermal properties in porous media and soft rocks. An experiment using SH-1 thermal sensor was carried out. In this work, disturbed samples from a silt loam soil were taken. Field observations and preliminary prospection must be performed.

Figure 2 shows the comparison for different positions of the thermal sensor and different wetting processes, to determine the thermal resistivity. These kinds of sensors use the heat pulse methodology and yield reliable soil thermal data.

The average temperature was Thermal properties showed an acceptable relationship with water content. Often, a common approach to present soil thermal properties has been to plot these properties as a function of water content.
