Abstract
This research project evaluated the globe thermometer in a variety of forms by exposure to extreme environments of simultaneous cooling and heating. It required development of information on the optimum construction and use of the globe thermometer, and on the calculation of radiant heat exchange from globe temperatures. It was demonstrated that design of globe thermometers is not very critical to their performance by fabricating a wide variety of globe thermometers, all of which provided similar temperature readings for a given set of conditions, and yielded predictable temperature readings over a wide range of known conditions of air temperature, air velocity, and radiative intensity. Other conclusions were detailed for the effects upon time lag of several parameters, and various means of reducing time lag in globe thermometers.
