Title: Heat conduction in partial vacuum. Technical progress report, August 7, 1978-January 31, 1979

Abstract

Basic theoretical work on heat conduction in evacuated solar collectors is reported. The results include estimates for minimum partial vacuum necessary to eliminate conduction, and the effects of helium penetration into the evacuated region.
