Good afternoon,

I have a tank filled with granite rock granules of average diameter 20mm and the void volume filled with water. Is it possible to estimate the effective thermal conductivity of the rock-water medium?


Thank you

This report on the thermal properties of rocks might help: https://pubs.usgs.go...0441/report.pdf

It includes correction for water in rock pores.
