reading on this now, looking at what does it really do, and applying it to the RS, or Secondary burn stove, and varients that we have all came up with.

Thermal conductivity


It represents the quantity of energy transfered by surface unit and time unit , under a temperature gradient.

besides different metals that conduct differently, thickness and temp both play a roll in how quickly it passes. .

In building any stove, there are places that you don't want heat to pass, and areas that you want it to pass in.
you want to build heat, and secondary burn the gases. rocket stoves are different than a conventional stove, in a reg stove with sec. burn, every thing happens right in the box.
so most line the box with fire brick, this keeps the heat from wanting to pass on walls.
lets it build quicker with less being conducted out the sides.
so right after the box, you want it to conduct, and get it out.
So thermal images, and cool down rates of air, will help you out with thickness of steel, to make sure you don't burn through, or thin enough to pass the heat out.

very tricky.
