Abstract : Work continues on an investigation of the behavior of electrically pulsed metal films on substrates of high thermal conductivity. The purpose is to investigate the behavior of a film when it is electrically heated and is in physical contact with a heat sink. Specifically, the object is to study the variable parameters and to develop a manufacturing process or processes for applying a bridge heating element to a ceramic surface with the required thermal contact.
