    Abstract

    Results of thermal measurements on over 300 pairs of fibrous glass board specimens, and statistical analysis of the data, are presented. This material is available as a Standard Reference Material (SRM) from the Office of Standard Reference Materials, National Bureau of Standards, Washington, D.C. 20234. Considerations are discussed for effective use of this SRM in the calibration of measurement systems such as the guarded hot-plate and heat flow meter apparatuses.
