Mohammed Abid Ali 1, V. V. S. Kesava Rao 2 ,  S. Raj pal singh 3


While designing a material for engineering application we should know the mechanical properties and also thermal properties like its conductivity for insulating materials. Of course  we can get the values from literature and catalogs , it is important to have our own method of finding. In this paper thermal conductivity of Plaster of Paris is found with concentric spheres. POP is an engineering material used for various engineering applications in construction engineering and composite materials.  

Key words: Plaster of pairs, thermal conductivity, concentric spheres method, thermal insulation
