Abstract:

A method to be utilized for human skin protection is described for determining 1 the minimum aperture size required to yield temperature rise data free from edge loss effects in measurementss made at the center of a site during thermal irradiation of a semi-infinite solid 2 the magnitude of edge losses due to restriction of the irradiated area to less than the no loss size, and its variation with respect to irradiance level and exposure time and 3 where the thermal properties of the material are known, the energy absorption rate. The latter, on comparison with the measured incident energy also yields a measure of the absorptivity of the materials.
