Thermal Measurements

The design and operational features of a radiator for verification and calibration of radiation thermometers are considered in the temperature range from −30 to +120°C. The temperature distribution is investigated over the bottom and walls of the radiating cavity in the steady-state regime at the lower and upper limits of the range.
