The paper is devoted to the study of thermal physical properties of coal-water fuel which was produced from high-ash coal or low-reactive coal. The thermal conductivity coefficient data of coal-water fuel were determined by using of combination of physical experiment and numerical modeling. It is shown, that thermal conductivity coefficient of coal-water fuel varies from 0.41 to 0.81 W/(m·K) and its value increases by temperature growth. Those values are significantly higher, than the same coefficient values of natural coal. The coefficient depends on the coal metamorphosis stage and amount of mineral impurities and water, contained in fuel. It was determined also that rising of mineral impurities share in coal to 10 % leads to increase the thermal conductivity coefficient value to 9…10 %. The increasing of water share in coal-water fuel can lead either to increase or to decrease value of thermal conductivity coefficient.
The heat capacity of coal-water fuel was investigated by using calorimetric method. It is found that heat capacity value of coal-water fuel varies from 3.5 to 6.5 kJ/(kg·K). The value is increasing on the rising of temperature and depends on mineral impurities and water shares in the fuel.
The dependencies of thermal conductivity coefficient and heat capacity value of coal-water fuel, which produced from coal of different metamorphosis stages, in relation to percentage shares of water and coal phases in fuel suspension and to the amount of mineral impurities, are obtained due to analysis of experimental data.
