Thermal Conductivity of Commercially Available 21-6-9 Stainless Steel
Thermal conductivity values of 21-6-9 stainless steel over the temperature range of 5 K to 120 K are reported. Thermal conductivity integrals are measured using a steady-state heat flux method. The resulting data are fit with a polynomial and differentiated to obtain the conductivity. The derived conductivity is compared to published data for high-manganese stainless steels and to data for other stainless steels. A discussion of the methodology and its accuracy is included.
