Electrical or thermal conductivity Comparative chart

TIBTECH conductivite des materiaux


Electrical or thermal Conductivity


Thermal conductivity


It represents the quantity of energy transfered by surface unit and time unit , under a temperature gradient.


Electrical conductivity


It is the opposite of the electrical resistivity. It corresponds to the "conductance" of a material of 1 meter length and 1m² section.


The "conductance" is the opposite of the resistivity ; Its unit is the " Siemens " : G = 1/R

Remarq:

Electrical conductivity and Thermal conductivity : Very good correlation ! (see chart here above)
