Abstract:

The characteristics of the various components of a radiative heat transfer facility are examined to determine how their combination produces a certain heat flux delivered to a sample. Two radiant heat sources are proposed as potential improvements over the tungsten filament-quartz envelope lamp. The cesium vapor lamp and a graphite rod heater are theoretically detailed and the results of experimental tests are presented. Author
