Thermal conductivity is defined as the quantity of heat (Q) transmitted through a unit thickness (L) in a direction normal to a surface of unit area (A) due to a unit temperature gradient (?T) under steady state conditions and when the heat transfer is dependent only on the temperature gradient.
This test method provides information useful in understanding and quantifying such parameters as thermal shock resistance and ability to conduct or dissipate heat.
