The transient hot-wire technique was employed to measure the thermal conductivity of the solid part of five different hollow bricks from Greece. Consequently a finite-elements procedure was developed in order to obtain the apparent thermal conductivity of the whole brick. The advantages of this technique for the optimum design of perforation patterns are demonstrated.
