Abstract : The TPRC Data Series published in 13 volumes plus a Master Index volume constitutes a permanent and valuable contribution to science and technology. This 17,000 page Data Series should form a necessary acquisition to all scientific and technological libraries and laboratories. These volumes contain an enormous amount of data and information for thermophysical properties on more than 5,000 different materials of interest to researchers in government laboratories and the defense industrial establishment. Volume 2 in this 14 volume TPRC Data Series covers nonmetallic materials which are in the solid state at normal temperature and pressure, including five elements (with over 100 varieties of graphite), 53 simple and complex oxides, 82 systems of oxide mixtures, 83 nonoxide compounds, seven systems of mixtures of oxides and nonoxides, 15 organic compounds, 22 kinds of cermets, 10 groups of systems, eight kinds of refractory materials, over 40 kinds of glasses, 24 minerals, 16 polymers, 26 animal and vegetable natural substances, 30 processed composites and processed natural and mineral substances, and 10 aggregate mixes, slags, scales, and residues. Data for the elements and for a few oxides have been critically evaluated, analyzed, and synthesized, and recommended values or provisional values are presented in addition to the original experimental data.
