The thermophysical and some other properties of solids are of great importance for the use in the chemical, military, and even aerospace industries and for the design of efficient cryogenic equipment. Considering the heat loads, cooling, thermal fluctuations, or stresses or cryogenic fluids in boilers, the thermophysical properties should be considered. There is a considerable literature on the mechanical and structural properties of solids at cryogenic temperatures, but unfortunately there is not enough literature available for thermophysical properties. This chapter is recommended to close this gap. This chapter basically states: thermophysical properties of metals at cryogenic temperatures, specific heats, and thermal conductivity.
