AbstractThis report is concerned with resistance wire thermometer measurements made by the British Joint Fire Research Organization to provide information on the growth of the heat content of the gases in a burning enclosure. Measurement of the resistance of a wire gives its mean temperature, to a close approximation, and if the wire is thin is a measure of the mean temperature of the gases surrounding the length of the wire. The heat content of the gases can then be estimated by postulating the form of the temperature distribution along the length of the wire.
