Abstract

In a paper presented at the 1959 Cryogenic Engineering Conference [1], the authors discussed the theory of heat transfer through an insulation system and pointed out the design requirements of a high-efficiency insulation system. Preliminary results of the experimental work with such insulation was presented and correlated with theory.
