Thermal conductivities of molten metals: Part 1 Pure metals

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Thermal conductivity data for molten metals, published since the review of Touloukian et al. in 1970, are collated and evaluated. Where possible recommended values are given. Where availability of data permits, the Wiedemann-Franz-Lorenz equation relating electrical and thermal conductivities has been assessed. It has been found to be valid for most pure metals at their melting point.
