Abstract : The thermal conductivity of two-phase systems, one phase dispersed uniformly throughout the other is considered. Three types of dispersions - suspensions (solid particles suspended in a liquid), emulsions (liquid droplets distributed throughout an immiscible liquid), and powder beds (solid particles resting one upon another with a gas filling the interstitial spaces) - were investigated. Previous investigations, equipment information, test procedures, experimental results, and a discussion of results as they relate to theoretical developments and practical uses are included.
