Standard Reference Materials for Thermal Conductivity and Electrical Resistivity
A brief historical review is presented of thermal conductivity reference material research. Recent reference material research by the National Bureau of Standards is described. Critically evaluated thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity data are summarized for the following three Standard Reference Materials now available from the Office of Standard Reference Materials, National Bureau of Standards, Washington, D. C.: electrolytic iron (4 to 1000 K), austenitic stainless steel (4 to 1200 K), and tungsten (4 to 3000 K).
Key WordsAustenitic stainless steel electrical resistivity high temperature iron low temperature standard reference materials thermal conductivity tungsten.
