Modeling Alcogel Aging for Cycle Time Reduction and Measurement of Related Thermophysical Properties.

Orellano, David.

Abstract: The thermal aging of silica alcogels in an alcohol solution is an important step in the production of fiber reinforced aerogel insulation. However, aging is time consuming and process limitations at the manufacturing scale are not well understood. Two approaches have been taken to develop a better understanding of aging with the goal of process acceleration. First, the thermal conductivi... read more
