Fire tests -- Calibration and use of radiometers and heat flux meters -- Part 1: General principles

ISO/TS 14934-1:2002 gives guidelines for calibration and use of radiometers and heat flux meters in fire testing and for correction of the sensitivity function due to convection effects.

It briefly describes the calibration methods, the most commonly used types of radiometers and heat flux meters, and the fire tests in which these transducers are used.

ISO/TS 14934-1:2002 is applicable to total hemispherical radiometers, total heat flux meters of Schmidt-Boelter (thermopile) and Gardon (foil) type. It applies only to instruments having plane receivers and does not apply to receivers in the form of wires, spheres, etc.
