In this chapter we work through examples of tube temperature measurements for several common furnace geometries. In each case, we follow the same general procedures for collecting and processing the data to determine temperature corrections and uncertainties. These two procedures are outlined below.
The first example, given in Section 7.2, demonstrates the procedures in detail, so it is worthwhile following through this example even if your furnace is not of the multi-row box geometry. The remainder of the examples do not contain the same level of detail, but mainly focus on issues specific to their geometry and operating conditions.
