Among the ways of energy transfer by conduction is that of molecular interaction, in which the greater motion of a molecule at a higher energy level (temperature) imparts energy to adjacent molecules at lower energy levels. This type of transfer is present, to some degree, in all systems in which a temperature gradient exists and in which molecules of a solid, liquid, or gas are present. So, in heat transfer, the thermal conductivity of a substance is an intensive property that indicates its ability to conduct heat In particular in the building sector. The thermal flux is often measured with a mathematical analysis but for the same material, on the other hand the estimate will be disruptive and sometimes very difficult when the material changes. In this paper, a single equation for predicting heat flux of different materials is given.
