The available experimental data for the thermal conductivity of liquid bismuth, cobalt, germanium, and silicon have been critically examined with the intention of establishing thermal conductivity reference correlations. All experimental data have been categorized into primary and secondary data according to the quality of measurement specified by a series of criteria. The proposed standard reference correlations for the thermal conductivity of liquid bismuth, cobalt, germanium, and silicon are, respectively, characterized by uncertainties of 10%, 15%, 16%, and 9.5% at the 95%confidence level.
