An inversion method for determining the effective thermal conductivies of porous materials from observed mean effective thermal conductivities is presented. Its validity is confirmed by numerical simulations. The effective thermal conductivities of glass beads are determined by the proposed method successfully used to predict the temperature profiles within the glass beads.
