Thermal diffusivity of CFRP and GFRP, courtesy of Cytec, has been measured through a step change technique developed at Newcastle University. The step change technique is capable of measuring thermal diffusivity without the need of knowing or estimating the heat capacity (density and specific heat). Results from room temperature to 100°C for unidirectional CFRP and 0/90 GFRP supplied by Cytec are presented. A comparison between the measurements obtained through the step change technique and the guarded heat flow meter method, is presented and good agreements were found.
