The Effect Of
Soil Thermal Resistivity (Rho) On Underground Power Cable Installations
about the thermal properties of soil for the electrical power
How Rho Changes With Changing Density, Temperature, Composition,
And Water Content Of Backfill
Get the best
possible thermal resistivity measurements by understanding the
principal factors affecting rho.

the standard in 2008, the IEEE update is in progress. Read about
the current state of the art, the current state of the standards,
and how the KD2 Pro measures up.
Reduce Contact Resistance Errors In Thermal Properties Measurements
measurements require good contact with the sample. Discover how
to get accurate measurements in dry granular materials, especially
those with large grain size.
