I improved Appendix A, per suggestions from Mel: APPENDIX A. [kR′] HEAT TRANSFER COEFFICIENT FORMAT

Added by Jed Rothwell in 2018 Fleischmann used the designation [kR′] where R is the radiative heat transfer coefficient, with 2 or 3 subscripts: [kR′] *i, j, l*. The subscripts mean: *i* Method of analysis. 1=Differential; 2=Backward integration; 3=Forward integration *j* When present: Time period of measurement cycle. When there are only two subscripts this term is not included. j=5, times somewhat above the origin j=6, times somewhat above t1 [application of calibration pulse] j=7, times somewhat above t2 [cessation of calibration pulse] j=8, combination of times for j=6 and j=7 *l* Indicates 1=Lower bound; 2=True Thus: [kR′]11 indicates: Differential, Lower bound. [kR′]262 indicates: Backward integration; Time period 6; True value. A single bar over the kR′ term indicates this is an 11-point average value, where values are measured every 5 minutes (55 minutes): The double bar, used in other documents, indicates a double average; that is, 6 of the 11-point averages combined (6 × 55 = 330 minutes total): Source: Miles, M., M. Fleischmann, and M.A. Imam, *Calorimetric Analysis of a Heavy Water Electrolysis Experiment Using a Pd-B Alloy Cathode* 2001, Washington: Naval Research Laboratory, pages 4-5.
