Revision of E408 - 71(2002) Standard Test Methods for Total Normal Emittance of Surfaces Using Inspection-Meter Techniques

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E408 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: E21.04 | Committee E21 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    E408 was last revised in 1971. It is a document that is too narrow in its scope in that other more recent instruments are also able to perform this measurement and the document needs to incorporate these other instruments. Additionally, there are no known current suppliers of instruments that specifically are designed to this standard.
