Laser-flash thermal analysis has been applied to measure the thermal diffusivity of highly oriented samples of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene. Due to the anisotropy of the sample, in-plane measurements are required instead of through-plane ones.
This project has been funded by the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), grant EP/K034405/1.
