Four-probe dc method for measuring the electrical resistivities of molten metals

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A four-probe dc technique for measuring liquid-metal electrical resistivities has been developed, and liquid-resistivity measurements on gallium, tin, lead, copper, a lead tin alloy, a copper tin alloy, and a zinc alloy have been presented. The Lorenz relation has been used to calculate thermal conductivities from these resistivity measurements. The thermal conductivities calculated from these resistivity measurements are (where data are available) in good agreement with recommended liquid-metal thermal conductivities.
