Abstract

Numerical values of the total hemispherical emissivities h of a mechanically polished surface and an electropolished surface of a sample of stainless steel, type AISI 304, have been determined experimentally for the first time in the temperature range 340–1100 K. An absolute method incorporating the transient calorimetric principle was used in these measurements. It is found that the h values obtained are only very slightly different from those predicted by a classical expression for total hemispherical emissivity developed by Davisson and Weeks.
