Abstract

The thermal conductivity of KNO3-NaNO3 mixtures was measured by a modified transient hot-wire method using liquid metal in a capillary as a heat source. The method was developed for measurements on electrically conducting liquids at high temperatures. Measurements were performed on pure NaNO3 and its three mixtures with KNO3 in the temperature range from 498 to 593 K.
