Project Summary Project Information

For an updated project description, review the Project Readiness Package.


The purpose of this project is to provide the Chemical Engineering Department at RIT with an apparatus that demonstrates one dimensional conductive heat transfer to students in the lab. The equipments primary capability must be to provide the means to calculate the thermal conductivity of a material. Thermal conductivity is a measure of the materials ability to conduct heat. The equipment will reinforce topics related to heat transfer and will serve as a hands on learning opportunity for students in the lab.
