Abstract

This paper describes the present status of NBS thermal conductivity Standard Reference Materials (SRM’s) and Calibrated Transfer Specimens (CTS’s). Included are the metal SRM’s, tungsten, electrolytic iron, and austenitic stainless steel. Also discussed is graphite, a soon-to-be-established SRM, and candidate SRM’s, such as black quartz. Finally, a description is given of the insulation SRM’s and CTS’s.
