A review presented is of the analytical and experimental investigations, conducted to predict or determine the thermal conductivity of beds of packed spherical particles such as those found in sphere-pac reactor fuels. Included are packed beds in which the particles are all of uniform size and beds in which several different sizes exist. Analytical techniques for packed beds both with and without restructuring are presented, discussed, and compared with the existing experimental data. Based upon this review, it is apparent that additional analytical and experimental investigations are necessary, in order to accurately predict the effective thermal conductivity in sphere-pac reactor fuels. Specific areas where this need is greatest are identified and discussed.
