A means of direct determination of the Biot number in oven heating tests Part 2. Implications of the results for temperature measurement

Previously reported results for the Biot number in an oven heating test have been utilised in the calculation of convection coefficients, both to the sample itself and to a thermocouple measuring the oven temperature. A full heat balance on the thermocouple tip is performed in order to predict the accuracy with which the oven temperature - utilised in calculations following from oven heating experiments - can be measured.
