Thermal Conductivity Calculator

Thermal conductivity determines the amount of heat transferred through a material. It is computed from Fourier's Law for heat conduction. The transfer of heat through a material will be higher when it holds higher thermal conductivity. Use our online thermal conductivity calculator to find the heat transfer rate of any material based on thermal conductivity constant, temperature differential and distance.

Materials with the higher thermal conductivity are used as the heat sink applications and any material with the lower conductivity is used as the insulators. One can also calculate resistivity which is the opposite of thermal conductivity using our online thermal conductivity calculator.
