Abstract : This report presents and discusses the available data and information on the thermal conductivity of the elements and contains the recommended reference values resulting from critical evaluation, analysis and synthesis of the available data and information. It also gives estimated values, at least for normal temperature, for all those elements for which no thermal conductivity information is available. Experimental thermal conductivity data are available in the world literature for 82 elements and estimated values for four other elements. Estimated values for the remaining 19 elements are given here, although only rough estimates are given for the trans-plutonium elements. Thus, this work provides recommended or estimated thermal conductivity values for all the 105 elements. This work is published in two companion versions: this comprehensive volume and an abridged version. In addition to the recommended and estimated thermal conductivity values for elements, the comprehensive volume presents the original data, specimen characterization, and measurement information for the 5200 sets of raw data compiled; contains a detailed discussion for every element reviewing the individual pieces of available data and information together with the considerations involved in arriving at the final assessment and recommendations, and with the theoretical guidelines or semi-empirical correlations on which the critical evaluation, analysis, and synthesis are based; and includes also the complete bibliographic citations for the 1658 references.
