"It is the object of this thesis to investigate the possibility of using thermoelectric pyrometry for surface temperature measurement of metal undergoing induction heating. The temperature range under investigation, as stated before, is 400 °F to 1250 °F. This research may actually be treated by two sections.
The first section concerns the methods of using thermocouples for ordinary surface temperature measurements. The second section concerns the effect, if any, on thermocouple e.m.f. readings while it is measuring the surface temperature of a metal undergoing induction heating. The first section of the investigation has been well covered by literature and will be discussed under "Review of Literatures". The main body of the thesis will be composed of experiments dealing with the second part of this investigation; that is, the investigation of the induction heating effect on thermocouples as a temperature sensing element, since, to the knowledge of the author, there has not yet been any comprehensive attempt made in that direction"--Introduction, pages 1-2.
