- ... The dual-probe heat-pulse (DPHP) method is useful for measuring soil thermal properties; however, the probes of a DPHP sensor can deflect when inserted into the soil. Theoretical analysis has shown that measurements of thermal conductivity (λ) should be unaffected by deflection-induced changes in probe spacing. To verify this result, the conductivities of water, dry sand, and saturated sand were m ...
