Abstract

Transient heat conduction in a copper rod was studied using an arc-imaging furnace to supply pure radiant thermal energy at flux levels up to 1000 cal/cm2 -sec. No significant effects were observed attributable to the rate of heating up to and through melting at the surface. Transient temperature profiles agree well with theory and melting was initiated at its equilibrium temperature. The dynamics of the vaporization process are more uncertain.
