This document aims to describe the problems in current radiant heat source heat flux calibration techniques and the approach our team took to solve them through automation. The following sections outline the basic premise of the problem we addressed and who our end product benefited. The proceeding sections addresses the research that we have performed regarding heat flux measurements and automation. This research includes current solutions – mostly partial solutions for problems that are similar but not exactly like ours. Following the background research, we define objectives, with specific details that outline how we evaluated different possible solutions, and how we decided upon our final approach. We discuss our detailed plan used to accomplish each of these objectives, the design process leading to a final design, and the analysis that led to and verified this design. Finally the results and conclusions of the completed project are included.
