17, 18] have formulated a theory of heat conduction in deformable bodies, which depends on two distinct temperatures: the conductive temperature [phi] and the thermodynamic temperature [theta].
The thermodynamic temperature, T, is a measure of how the energy of the system is distributed among its microscopic states.
In conjunction with the General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM), the kelvin, the basic unit of thermodynamic temperature, is currently being redefined at the PTB (Physikalisch-Technischen Bundesanstalt) in Braunschweig, Germany, the counterpart of NIST in the U.
TPW] is taken as the symbol for the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water, in principle an invariant quantity, it follows directly from the definition of the kelvin that
In general W(F,[theta]) is different on both sides of [SIGMA], and generally non-convex in its first argument (F is the deformation gradient) and concave in the second one (the thermodynamic temperature [theta]).
Since the rate of heat and mass transfer to surrounding air at low air velocities is very small, adjacent radiant and conductive heat transfer can become significant, which tends to make the measured wet-bulb temperature greater than the thermodynamic temperature.

Since a point on any temperature scale only approximates the thermodynamic temperature at which a physical even such as the melting of gold occurs, ever-more-precise data pertaining to such phenomena allow scientists to calibrate their scales with less uncertainty.
