Abstract : The experimental effort is especially directed to obtaining measurements of heat conductivity at temperatures above the upper range of reported data. The design of the equipment is proceeding satisfactorily, and the necessary extensive theometric investigation will presently be in operation. The results of several years of conductivity measurements for a number of gases are brought together in this report in the form of tables for thirteen gases, computed from formulations which include all available information. Data for the first temperature range in the case of the mixture N2-CO2 are also given. Viscosities and specific heats are also included in the tables, all for zero pressure.
