Heat transfer through stationary media by molecular motion.
Heat transfer through moving media.
The ability of a surface to radiate heat.
A compound, usually a metal alloy, which absorbs molecular gases, primarily hydrogen. Getters work to preserve vacuum over extended time.
The number of BTUs conducted per degree Fahrenheit per foot per hour.
The aluminum foil and scrim wraps inside the vacuum cavity which act as a radiation shield.
Heat transfer by electromagnetic waves.
The thermal resistance (inverse to conductivity in k-value) of an item.
A pressure measurement unit. 760 Torr equals one atmosphere.
The thermal conductance of an item per unit surface area of that item. Related to k-value and R-value.
