Description: This study was designed to obtain thermal conductivity of som common forest fuels which hitherto had defied such efforts because of their shape, size, or structure. Dry leaves and decayed. wood (punk) were modified so that conductivity measurements could be made by a thin plate uni-directional heat flow calibration stand, Resultss of these measurements are compatible with a linear relationship between thermal conductivity and specific gravity, established by MacLean, and indicate that conductivities of most common forest fuels may be determined from their specific gravities, MacLean's equasions may be applicable genrally to most vegetable fibrous materials.
