    The work described in this publication was therefore organized in two areas: advanced materials and advanced measurement technology.

    Thirteen peer-reviewed papers measure performance indices for complex three-dimensional systems with multiple components, phase change materials, and in-situ systems. This publication is organized into two areas: advanced materials and advanced measurement technology.

    Papers cover:
    • Application issues for advanced vacuum insulation systems
    • Next-generation of insulation
    • Related challenges of supporting these technology advances with more sophisticated measurement systems
