3.1 Theory of Thermal Conduction Measurement
The thermal conductivity of insulation material is usually determined by the
conventional guarded-hot plate method. This method assumes unidirectional
heat flow through two test sample, placed on opposite sides of a heating plate,
each of which conducts heat to a water-cold plate. From the experimental
measured quantities, rate of flow, cross-sectional area, and length of test
sample, the thermal conductivity can be calculated from the Fourier law of
heat transfer

Chapter Three Theory
The accuracy of the determination depends on how well unidirectional heat
flow is maintained in the sample\$ i.e., it depends on the relative amount of
heat lost to the guarded-ring section. The departure from unidirectional heat
flow arises from the heat lost by convection at the edge of the sample.

3.2 Sound &nsulation 'ressure method 
0ound reduction index, 03(, or sound transmission loss, 0T', is the most
usual product-related acoustical quantity determined in laboratory or field
conditions after noise emission measurements of machinery. The first
theoretical formulation to determine the sound transmission loss of a partition
between two rooms was presented in the ,2"/9s by :avis and ;uc&ingham.
The first 60T< standard was based on 'ondon9s proposal in ,25,. The
principle of this method has remained the same over the years.
The sound reduction index, 03(, is defined by1

supposed to create a diffuse sound field. Thus, the incident sound power can
