Abstract

The linear attenuation coefficient (mu cm(-1)) of photon propogation and the thermal conductivity have been determined for some volcanic rocks, which are commonly used materials in building constructions especially as a cladding stone. The linear attenuation coefficient calculated using XCOM is compared with the measurement. Thermal conductivity has been extracted from P-Wave velocity measured using a Pundit apparatus. The relation between thermal conductivity and the attenuation coefficient are also investigated.
