Abstract

"The conduction and radiation of heat are of great importance in metallurgy. Metallurgical operations require, in the great majority of cases, temperatures above those of normal atmospheric conditions. Loss of heat is loss of dollars. Furnaces of all kinds allow to pass their walls a greater or less amount of heat, i.e. heat is lost by conduction and by radiation. This heat is often spoken of as radiation loss. It is due to the heat being conducted from the inside to the outside of the furnace. The materials of construction, and manner of building the furnace has much to do with the loss by radiation...The purpose of this thesis is to study the heat conductivity of some bricks and other materials, and some combinations of materials that could be used in the construction of furnaces"--page 1.
