Engineering Practice: Estimating Thermal Conductivity of Hydrocarbons

| By Alireza Bahadori Curtin University of Technology, Saeid Mokhatab Tehran Raymand Consulting Engineers

The thermal conductivity of hydrocarbons is an essential parameter that needs to be known when designing heat transfer equipment. Presented here is a simple-to-use correlation that was developed for predicting thermal conductivities of liquid paraffin…
