Two experiments have been conducted to study radiative heat transfer in light-weight fibrous insulations (LWFI). The spectral extinction coefficients for a commercial LWFI have been measured via transmission measurements and a guarded hot plate apparatus has been used to measure the radiant heat flux as well as the total heat flux in the insulation. The experimental results are compared with the theoretical values calculated according to the analytical models presented in Part I. The results suggest that the radiative heat transfer models developed are capable of predicting the radiant heat flux provided the radiative properties used are accurate.
