In order to make more effective use of infrared radiation, we have developed a basic method for predicting the heating effect quantitatively.
It allows one dimensional heat transfer analysis taking account of spectral properties. We can estimate the distribution and temporal variations of temperature inside the plastic plates to be heated. This method is applicable to heating systems without vaporization and enables us to predict what kind of emitter is most suitable to the platsic plate to be heated.
