This report describes the application of fine cold wires for heat transfer measurements in the shock tube. The use of the calorimetric property of the wire results in a heat transfer instrument with an output of .25 mv/oC and a response lag of less than 1 µsec. The gage construction, calibration, and response characteristics are discussed. Some preliminary results are also presented.
