Abstract : An analog data reduction system was devised to reduce strip chart records of temperature vs. time to convenient graphs of effective thermal diffusivity vs. temperature. This equipment is a necessary adjunct to the NOL alpha-rod experimental technique for ablation studies. Analog computation time is less than that of manual methods, and the precision of the results is improved.
