Abstract:
Existing and theory concerning the electrical conductivity, oxidation resistance and mechanical properties of

1. Pure Metals

2. Metallic Alloys

3. Metallic Binary Compounds

are presented and analyzed to determine the best approach to developing improved electrical conductors for use at temperatures up to 700 degrees and 1200 degrees C. Recommendations are made for experimental research and development in pure metals, metallic alloys, and metallic binary compounds. Considerable data has been collected and systematized in tables and graphs on the electrical, mechanical, and oxidation-resistant characteristics of these conductors. This should enable the design engineer to select the best electrical conductor to suit specific requirements of temperature, oxidation or mechanical environment, and cost.
