AbstractThe constant heat flux and constant temperature modes of operation of the guarded hot plate apparatus are compared and the existence of an optimum heat flux boundary condition is examined. The step response equations for the different modes and for various preconditioning temperatures are tabulated and presented in graphical form. Optimum preconditioning temperatures are determined. Effects of disturbances and plate capacity are discussed and control and measurement problems compared. A hybrid mode of operation is suggested. The extension of the results to the use of heat meters and transient heat flow apparatus is discussed. Constant temperature or a hybrid mode of operation is found to be the most practical. The response times can be an order of magnitude less than constant heat flux operation. Use of the guarded hot plate apparatus in the constant temperature mode is suggested for other measurements.
