If you have several sheets of different material, is the total thermal conductivity the sum of the individual thermal conductivities?

(I could be completely wrong on this)

so the addition ( for equal thickness layers) looks like,

[tex] \frac{1}{C_{tot}} = \sum \frac{1}{C_i} [/tex]

which reminds me of capacitors. I could also be wrong.
