B. Conduction of Heat in Soil The first law of heat conduction, known as Fourier's
law, states that the flux of heat in a homogeneous body is in the direction of, and
proportional to, the temperature gradient: <7h = -jc V7 (43) where qh is the ...
D. Thermal Conductivity of Soils Thermal conductivity, designated *, is defined as
the amount of heat transferred through a unit area in unit time under a unit
temperature gradient. The thermal conductivities of specific soil constituents differ
