Abstract : The thermal resistance of actual contact was experimentally determined. For soft metals with a relatively high heat conductivity, the basic heat flow in the contact zone passes through the area of actual contact, while for hard metals with relatively low heat conductivity, the heat is mainly passed through gas. The change in the over-all thermal resistance dependent on the load determines the change in conductivity of the actual contact. (Author)
