THERMALLY INSULATED TEST ROAD: STATE ROAD 26-PERFORMANCE AND TEMPERATURE PREDICTION STUDIES

CONSTRUCTION AND INSTRUMENTATION OF A THERMALLY INSULATED TEST ROAD, INCLUDING TEMPERATURE SENSORS, WERE COMPLETED IN 1969 IN INDIANA. THE ANALYSIS OF THE DATA OBTAINED FOR THE 1969-70 SEASON IS DISCUSSED AND CHARACTERIZED BY TYPICAL GRAPHICAL REPRESENTATIONS. COMPARISONS OF MEASURED TEMPERATURES AND TEMPERATURES PREDICTED USING THE 2-D HEAT FLOW MODEL ARE PRESENTED. IN ADDITION, THE SENSITIVITY OF THE 2-D HEAT FLOW MODEL IS DISCUSSED WITH REGARD TO THE REQUIRED ACCURACY OF THE INPUT INFORMATION.
