Standard Test Method for Measuring Heat Flux Using a Copper-Constantan Circular Foil, Heat-Flux Gage
|Publication Date:||10 October 2001|
|ICS Code (Heat. Calorimetry):||17.200.10|
1.1 This test method describes the measurement of radiative or convective heat flux, or both, using a transducer whose sensing element (1, 2) is a thin circular metal foil. While benchmark calibration standards exist for radiative environments, no uniform agreement among practitioners or government entities exists for convective environments.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
