I'm currently working through some rather old documentation which gives the thermal conductivity of a material as 9.8 x 10⁻⁶ Btu/s-in.²-°F/in. There are many typical ways to give a thermal conductivity in imperial units, but this does not appear to be one of them - in fact, I cannot find any other instance of thermal conductivity being expressed this way, and even the document I'm working with only uses it a handful of times, none in specifying a known value or constant I could check against another unit of thermal conductivity.
I've worked through the units, and it seems most likely to me, though I'm far from confident in this, that this unit is equivalent to 2943641 watts per meter kelvin, making the given value equal to 28.85 W/mK (which seems like a plausible value).
However, I'm far from confident in my calculation here, in particular about the meaning of the dashes and period in the unit.
Is 1 Btu/s-in.²-°F/in = 2943641 W/mK the correct conversion factor? How would one read this unit aloud - "BTU per second-inch squared-degree farenheit per inch"?
