Abstract

Lees' Method is described at length in the Phil. Trons. An 1898, vol. 191, also in a general way in Poynting and Thompson's "Heat" and Watson's "Textbook of Physics." The modified method is described in detail in "The Measurement of the Heat Conductivity of Sulfur and a Sulfur-Coke Mixture," Physics Thesis by Paul C. Overstreet, State University of Iowa, 1925. This method consists of the measuring of the temperatures of a hot copper disk, U, on one side of a poor heat conducting disk, S, and that of a cooler disk, M, on the other side of S, after the system has come to a steady state - heat being furnished to U as described in Lees' Experiment.
