The heat flux temperature and density on a heat emitting calorimeter surface are defined from an incorrect inverse heat conductivity problem, a software complex applied to solve an inverse heat conductivity problem and thermocouple measurement results.
Gas-droplet flows are tested at droplet velocity of 5 through 150 m/s and diameters of more than 5 mcm under surface temperatures of up to 12500C and heat flux densities of up to 20 MW/m2

Droplet velocities are determined by means of a special laser correlation velocity sensor (LKDC-1) within the range of 0.5 to 200 m/c.
In addition to temperature measurements by means of thermocouples the heat emitting surface temperature is remotely measured by FLIR System Thermocam S60 IR Camera.
To visualize a gas-droplet flow structure a SOLO IV impulse laser with an impulse duration of 5ns CANON EOS 300D Camera are used. The results of flow photographing to measure droplet sizes are processed by a special software complex. To measure droplet sizes in the range of up to 1000 mcm the MALVERN laser-optical instrument is also used.
A computerized test system on the basis of VME and 2 PCs provides physical parameter measurement and the test bench operation control.
