This thesis presents the procedure which was followed in the

design, construction, installation and calibration of a hot plate

apparatus for the determination of the thermal conductivities of common

insulating materials. No attempt is made to discuss heat flow through

other materials, or that engendered by other means. Various types

of hot plates, and different methods of application, however, are

discussed in a latter part of this thesis.
