where T is the thermodynamic temperature. The thermal conduction differential equation is a general expression to describe the conduction process but does not involve a specific conduction process.
The seven SI base units are length, time, mass, electric current, thermodynamic temperature, amount of substance, and luminous intensity.
[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].
During the 4-second damage mitigation process, the fused silica materials at high temperatures with relaxation time constant less than 4 seconds have sufficient time to approach the equilibrium state corresponding to the thermodynamic temperature. Upon quenching after switching off the C[O.sub.2] laser, the structures of these materials at high temperatures are maintained at the states that they reached at high temperatures due to the extremely large cooling rate.
where A, B, C are the constants provided by the manufacturer thermistor, T is thermodynamic temperature [3].
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.S.
The kelvin, unit of thermodynamic temperature, is the fraction 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water.
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.
Emitted spectral radiance L at wavelength [lambda] from a surface at thermodynamic temperature [T.sub.s] is given by multiplying the Planck function by spectral emissivity [epsilon]([lambda]) (Zhengming, 1999).
The thermodynamic temperature for crystallization of 0.4% and 1% DMDBS within the PP melt is evaluated from the kinetic measurements as about 180[degrees]C and 190[degrees]C, correspondingly.
