Abstract:

Results of the experimental observations of the thermal conductivity of pure water for the pressure range of atmospheric to 1400 bars and temperature from 0 - 30 C are presented. Data were obtained with a concentric cylinder apparatus and have an estimated accuracy of about 1. These data are compared with those previously reported in the literature. Historical relationships proposed to describe the behavior of the thermal conductivity are investigated, and their inadequacy noted.
