The objective of this work was to measure the thermal conductivity of the more common building materials used in Saudi Arabia and compare the results with the data reported in handbooks These materials included seven types of clay bricks, one type of sandlime bricks, five types of concrete blocks and one type of pre fabricated wall The study shows that, although the thermal conductivities of these materials lie within the range of the values reported in handbooks, they are on the higher side of the range.
