Knowledge of thermal conductivity is of major importance for material used in applications where thermal properties infl uence functionality in the products or in control of steps in manufacturing. Thermal conductivity is a fundamental property for all calculations of temperature fi elds in materials. To answer common question concerning temperature distribution in materials, the thermal conductivity must be known.
Typical questions are:
— What is the temperature distribution in materials exposed to heating or cooling?
— How does this change with temperature?
— How can I improve the heat transfer?
— What is the best material or material combination?
— How do I design a system to achieve the
There is also a scientifi c interest, since thermal
conductivity gives basic understanding of the underlying mechanism and also some information of the structure as well as indications of phase change and change of states.
