Combining the analysis developed in Chap.  3 with the experimental results in Chap.  5, the effects of thermal dispersion can be estimated. Near wall stagnant conductivities are first addressed because these are implicit in most analytical and numerical studies in the literature. Separated from these effects, thermal dispersion is determined.
