thermal conductance

[′thər·məl kən′dək·təns]
(thermodynamics)
The amount of heat transmitted by a material divided by the difference in temperature of the surfaces of the material. Also known as conductance.

thermal conductance

The time rate of flow of heat through a unit area of material from one of the faces of the material to the other, for a unit temperature difference between the two faces, under steady-state conditions.
