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.
Thermal Conductivity Graphs for Inorganic
Compounds and Elements
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
