06_Properties_GB_2007 2 Conductive Properties of Typical Building Materials 4.26 Water (still) 0.17 Air (still) 1500. Aluminum 310. Steel 1.72 8” concrete block 12. Stone 0.6 3” common brick 5.0 Brick 0.05 ¼” glass 5.4 Glass 4.3 2x4 wood stud 0.8 Wood (soft) 19.0 5-1/2” insulation 0.3 Insulation (hr-ft2-°F/Btu) Resistance, R Component (Btu-in/hr-ft2-°F) Conductivity, k Material See Reader, Appendix 5 for property values NOTE: R = d/k Example • 4" thick wall of concrete, k = 12 (Btu-in / hr-ft 2 -ºF) • Find R = d/k = 4 (in) / 12 (Btu-in / hr-ft 2 -ºF) = 0.33 hr-ft 2 -ºF/Btu Example • 4" thick wall of concrete, k = 12 (Btu-in / hr-ft 2 -ºF) • Find R = d/k = 4 (in) / 12 (Btu-in / hr-ft 2 -ºF) = 0.33 hr-ft 2 -ºF/Btu • If the wall was 10 ft 2 and had a 5ºF temperature difference across it, how much heat would flow?
