Abstract

The thermal resistance of a steel-to-steel contact in an ambient air environment is increased by the insertion at the interface of a gauze made from soft, high conductivity metallic wires, whereas such inserts lead to a decrease of the overall thermal resistance of the assembly in vacuum. The thermal resistance of the assembly in vacuum with the gauze inserted has been predicted via a simple analysis by considering the contact areas formed. © 1975.
