The impulse technique is progressively being developed for determining the steady state rate of heat transfer systems involving exponential temperature-time histories. A pulse thermocouple system has been utilized in such a technique having a steady state response time on the order of one time constant of the thermocouple used. When an impulse thermocouple system is not used, the required time in obtaining the steady state value is on the order of five time constants or the time required to reach steady state.
