In the first part of this paper, we present a transient model of radial heat conduction in infinitely large media to model the hot-wire technique. Pulse and a Heaviside heat sources are investigated. The general instantaneous solution is generated using Green’s functions and is computed with a hybrid method. Thus, the estimation of the thermal properties is possible using a fitting routine or using the concept of maximum temperature rising at any point of the media. In the second part, a model including three temperature measurements is set to determine the diffusivity with a fitting procedure and an existing inverse scheme is improved to determine the conductivity.

Keywords: Heat conduction, thermal properties, hot wire technique, parameters estimation, inverse scheme, thermal diffusivity, thermal conductivity.
