Part of the Experimental Fluid Mechanics book series (FLUID)


Infrared thermography is predominantly applied in thermo-fluid-dynamics for the measurement of the convective heat flux q c (energy per unit surface and per unit time, W/m 2), and/or the convective heat transfer coefficient h (heat flux per unit temperature difference, W/m 2 K), between a solid surface and a fluid flowing on it. To measure either q c or h a heat flux sensor is needed.
