    Description

    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.

    Table of Contents

    Preface; Thermal Conductivity Graphs for Inorganic; Compounds and Elements References; Appendix A: Coefficients for Thermal; Conductivity Equation for Liquids and Solids; Appendix B: Coefficients for Gas Thermal Conductivity Equation; Appendix C: Data Code for Compounds; Appendix D: Compound List by Formula; Appendix E: Compound List by Name; Appendix F: Computer Program for Gas Thermal Conductivity; Appendix G: Computer Program for Thermal; Conductivity of Liquids and Solids
