Insulation Investigation Searching for Alternatives
Division:Health Sciences / None
Region:Prince Edward Island
City:Cornwall, PE
School:Bluefield High School
Abstract:I designed a thermo conductivity device that was used to test ten chosen materials and a control to see if any would be able to compete with polystyrene foam or fiberglass insulation. The control was found to be the least effective. Although polystyrene insulation was found to be the most efficient insulator, used dryer sheets were found to be just as effective as fiberglass insulation.
