Abstract

In this thesis the thermal response of the hollow cylinder subjected to a step in flux on the inner surface is determined. The solution to this problem consists of two parts: the transient part, and the quasi-steady part. The difficulties in arriving at the solution are discussed and an alternate derivation of the quasi-steady solution is presented. ^ The solution may be used when using hollow cylinders as calorimeters, for the calibration of heat flux from various sources such as plasma arcs. The transient colorimeters, the quasi-steady solution with the slug calorimeters.^
