Abstract

Accurate temperature and thermal property measurements are critical for the modeling and prediction of heat transfer. In many industries thermal management is a limiting factor of performance, and rely on advanced modeling techniques to develop and design methods to better manage thermal energy. This study expands the thermal property and pyrometry measurement capabilities by developing three new techniques based on thermal emission’s nonlinear dependence on temperature.
