Handbook of Thermal Conductivity, Volume 4:

Inorganic Compounds and Elements


  • Carl L. Yaws, Professor of chemical engineering (retired), Lamar University, Beaumont, TX, USA

Thermal conductivity data is important in many engineering applications in the chemical processing and petroleum refining industries. The objective of this book is to provide the engineer with such data. The date is presented in graphs covering a wide temperature range to enable the engineer to quickly determine values at points of interest. The contents of the book are arranges in the following order: graphs, references, and appendixes.
