Abstract

"The published data pertaining to the thermal conductivity of liquids are of such a character that it is very difficult to determine from them the correct value, or the temperature coefficient for any liquid.

Most of the published values of thermal conductivity for liquids are evaluated at one particular temperature. It is the purpose of this investigation to design, construct and calibrate a thermal conductometer for liquids over a temperature range of 30°F to 200°F.

Since water and glycerol were the only liquids found by this investigator with published data on their conductivities as a function of temperature, they were used as the calibration liquids for the conductometer in this investigation"--Abstract, page ii.
