Abstract:

The aim of this investigation has been to create a mathematical model for calculating thermal conductivity of soils with ordinary soil parameters as input data. One part of this work has been devoted to literature studies on heat-transfer mechanisms in moist materials. These studies have made it possible to give bounds for the different domains where the various mechanisms have an appreciable influence on the total heat transfer.
