Abstract

The available experimental data for the thermal conductivity of liquid copper, gallium, indium, iron, lead, nickel and tin have been critically examined with the intention of establishing thermal conductivity reference correlations. All experimental data have been categorized into primary and secondary data according to the quality of measurement specified by a series of criteria. The proposed standard reference correlations for the density of liquid copper, gallium, indium, iron, lead, nickel and tin are respectively characterized by standard deviations of 9.8, 15.9, 9.7, 13.7, 16.9, 7.7 and 12.6% at the 95% confidence level.
