not yet rated|write a review
This book gives a comprehensive account of the principles and practical methods applicable to transient temperature measurements in engineering and science. Transient temperatures are taken to be in the range from about 200K to 6000K and with timescales from tenths of nanoseconds to tens ofseconds. Within these limits is a very large field of combustion and gas dynamics and these are the principle areas which are addressed. Several new experimental and theoretical techniques are introduced and various modes of thermal failure are described.The chapters move from undergraduate material to the latest methods and are designed to be of use to the widest possible range of engineers, scientists, and students working in universities or in chemical or mechanical engineering. Many applications are described.

Editorial Reviews

`The book successfully blends basic scientific concepts and engineering applications. The fundamentals are very clearly described at a level appropriate to final-year undergraduates, while the details and case studies will be of value to scientists and engineers wishing to measure thermaltransients.'
