The apparent temperature of nonisothermal sheets with a wavelength dependent absorption coefficient was investigated. A polypropylene sheet with a parabolic temperature distribution across its thickness was used as an illustration of apparent temperature calculations. It was found that the variation of the apparent temperature of polypropylene with thickness was different from that of gray media (with absorption coefficient independent of wave length). This difference was attributed to the effect of …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
