Thermal conductivity is a material property that describes ability to conduct heat. Thermal conductivity can be defined as

"the quantity of heat transmitted through a unit thickness of a material - in a direction normal to a surface of unit area - due to a unit temperature gradient under steady state conditions".

Thermal conductivity most common units are W/(m K) in the SI system and Btu/(h ft °F) in the Imperial system.

Tabulated values and thermal conductivity units conversion are given below the figures.


Online Carbon Dioxide Thermal Conductivity Calculator

The calculator below can be used to estimate the thermal conductivity of gaseous carbon dioxide at given temperatures and 1 bara.
The output conductivity is given as mW/(m K), Btu(IT)/(h ft °F), (Btu(IT) in)/(h ft2 °F) and kcal(IT)/(h m K).
