Abstract

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.
