Conductivity v Temp In Alloys v Pure Metals

The thermal conductivity of pure metals decreases dramatically with temperature. The exact opposite happens in alloys.
This is why so many people hate materials science.

No, general stupidity about the solid state of matter is the general rule. For engineers.
Tthere is little value in attempting to understand what stupid people hate, and why they hate it..
Well, a study of engineering pathological personalities may gain value from such inquiries.
Your overly generalized statement isn't true anyway. Again, typical of those who lack understanding of the solid state of matter.
There are conditins where the thermal conductivity of pure metals varies as the cube of the absolute temperature, meaning thermal conductivity rises rapidly with temperature for many pure metals, under the right conditions.

Someone needs to start working on a more user friendly version of Nature.
