    Abstract

    This paper presents a description of the line-heat-source guarded hot plate apparatus conceived by the late H. E. Robinson, the results of mathematical analyses of potential sources of uncertainty, and the design of an apparatus of this type being constructed at the National Bureau of Standards. This design utilizes a line source heater, from which heat diffuses laterally in the plate. Such a design does not produce a wholly uniform plate temperature, but does enable calculation of average plate surface, and edge, temperatures utilizing only a few temperature sensors.
