GRADIENT HEAT FLUX MEASUREMENT IN PHYSICAL AND INDUSTRIAL EXPE
St. Petersburg State Politechnical University, Department of Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer;
Abstract. Application of bismuth-based gradient heat flux sensors in physical and industrial experiments. Novel gradient heat flux sensors of improved thermal endurance are designed and tested. Basic compositions used in the sensors and their characteristics are presented. Perspective employment of the sensors at temperatures of up to 1300 K is considered.
Keywords: heat flux, sensor, Seebeck effect, heat transfer investigation.
