Evolution of the NWC Thermal Standard. Part 3. Application and Evaluation of the Thermal Standard in the Field
Summary rept. Jun 1971-Jun 1976
BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIV PROVO UT
Pagination or Media Count:
The thermal standard has proven to be a valuable tool as a means to 1 predict hourly surface temperatures of adjacent ordnance, replacing the need to instrument a large variety of ordnance, 2 predict cumulative probability- temperature curves for various items, and 3 generate a typical day and, using only 10 of the daily maximum and minimum temperatures, predict the annual cumulative probability-temperature curve accurately for various ordnance items. This will allow for the relatively simple reduction of a large volume of data. Future uses, e.g., environmental work, for the concept of the thermal standard are suggested.
