Abstract:

The development was investigated of thermocouples to measure accurately the surface temperature of the body. Thermocouples mounted on copper window screen gave skin temperature readings comparable to those obtained by a radiometer. The surface temperature of the body can be measured easily and with accuracy with these thermocouple assemblies. These thermocouple assemblies are recommended except where the greatest precision is necessary.
