Abstract : This work reviews and discusses the available data and information on the thermal conductivity of ten selected binary alloy systems and presented the recommended values resulting from critical evaluation, analysis, and synthesis of the available data. The ten binary alloy systems selected are the systems of aluminum-copper, aluminum-magnesium, copper-gold, copper-nickel, copper-palladium, copper-zinc, gold-palladium, gold-silver, iron-nickel, and silver-palladium. The recommended values given include values of the total thermal conductivity, electronic thermal conductivity, and lattice thermal conductivity. The uncertainty of the values is generally of the order of plus or minus 10%. The values for each of the alloy systems except two are given for 25 alloy compositions: 0.5, 1 , 3, 5, 10(5), 95, 97, 99, and 99.5%. For most of the alloy compositions, the values cover the temperature range from 4 K to the solidus temperature or 1200K. In addition, reliable methods for the estimation of the electronic and lattice thermal conductivities of alloys have been developed in this study. (Author)
