A new technical approach of a traditional method for the rapid (and therefore, non interfering) determination of the thermophysical properties of porous materials likely, a priori, to undergo coupled heat and moisture transfers is described. The improvements discussed here consist in the use of a heater film suiting the “method of the hot plane film” especially well. A comparison with former works by one of the method's author is made. Finally, the updated method is applied to a variety of particularly significant materials.
