Abstract

Aluminum is increasing in the number and kinds of uses for cryogenic equipment. Because of this increase, an experimental study of the low temperature thermal conductivities and electrical resistivities of some of the common aluminum alloys was conducted. To further facilitate cryogenic design, a table of compositions, grain sizes, hardnesses, and uses is also presented.
