Abstract

A Phyllostachys edulis (Moso Bamboo)sample's density, heat capacity and thermal effusivity were obtained by a series of experiments. The porosity, thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity were calculated. Based on these experimental values, this study discusses the Phyllostachys edulis sample's microstructure characteristics and the causes of the variation of thermal properties along the radial direction.
