Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present our experimental results on the determination of the thermal conductivity of biological tissues using a transient technique based on the principles of cylindrical hot-wire method. A novel, 1 .45mmdiameter, 50mm long hot wire probe was deployed. Initial measurements were made on sponge, gelatin and Styrofoam insulation to test the accuracy of the probe. Subsequent experiments conducted on sheep collagen in the range of 25°C
