Abstract

We will give first a description of the apparatus, giving in general its features, advantages and disadvantages. Then we will list the commercial coppers which were measured, giving the chemical composition, manufacturing techniques, common usages, and types found on the usual stock shelf. We will finally give several graphs of the thermal conductivity of the tested materials, stress the differences, and make suggestions for the best utilization of the different types of coppers and their alloys.
