- New research on TC for insulants, coatings, low temperature and nanomaterials
- Original data on diffusivity and thermal measurement techniques
- Thermal measurement, properties of many natural and engineered materials
- Fully refereed presentations on thermal conductivity
With electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity is increasingly recognized as a critical property of engineered materials. This attractive, case bound book, published in late 2010, offers 94 full-length and original research papers and 22 abstracts investigating all phases of thermal conductivity relating to a wide range of materials. Special attention is given to novel measurement techniques, data analysis, and applications in numerous areas, including insulation, electrical material, porous media, fire-resistant elements, and nanomaterials. The refereed contributions to the book were originally presented at the ITCC 30 conference.
