dry-bulb temperature

[¦drī ‚bəlb ′tem·prə·chər]
(physics)
The actual air temperature as measured by a dry-bulb thermometer.

dry-bulb temperature

The air temperature indicated by a dry-bulb thermometer after correction for the effects of radiation.

dry-bulb temperature

dry-bulb temperature
Dry bulb thermometer.
The temperature measured by a thermometer not affected by the evaporation of water. It is the ambient air temperature as measured by a normal thermometer.

Meteorological data of dry-bulb temperature, wet-bulb temperature, relative humidity, and temperature humidity index (THI) were significantly different by time (p < 0.
It's called that because it can be measured with a thermometer wrapped in a wet cloth, distinguishing it from the commonly reported dry-bulb temperature, measured in open air.
The refrigerant charge level was determined at Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) cooling rating conditions of 95[degrees]F (35[degrees]C) ambient dry-bulb temperature and 67[degrees]F (19.
It was assumed that the gas was saturated for the first part of the cycle while the evaporation rate was high and that after a selected dry-bulb temperature was reached, the air was no longer saturated.
The lowest temperature that can be achieved by air-blast cooling is related to the dry-bulb temperature and is therefore higher than the temperatures that can be achieved by a cooling tower.
The floating head pressure controller controls head pressure to a constant degree of approach to the dry-bulb temperature for air-cooled condensers and to the wet-bulb temperature for evaporative condensers.
The patties were cooked at 177 C dry-bulb temperature to endpoint center temperatures of 45 C, 55 C, 65 C, 75 C and 85 C.
An accurate measurement of the true wet- and dry-bulb temperature does, however, require adequate ventilation across the wet bulb to remove ambient moisture buildup.
They also measured wet-bulb and dry-bulb temperature in the air 2-3 inches above the bedroom floor and on the surface of the bed and bedroom floor with a Microscanner D-501 (Exergen Coportion, Newton, MA).
The refrigerant charge level was determined at the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) cooling rating conditions (AHRI 2008) of 95[degrees]F (35[degrees]C) ambient dry-bulb temperature and 67[degrees]F (19.
The cooling of the sensor below the ambient dry-bulb temperature leads to convective heat gain from the air stream to the temperature sensor.
