Abstract : The infrared laws of similitude are applied to the problem of measuring the infrared contrast of a system by a laboratory study of scale models. Plans are detailed for an experiment and measurements to be made on a particular scale model. The role of dimensionless variables in the overall design of the experiment is emphasized. A complete list of typical measurements required is given, together with the measurement equipment to be employed. A discussion is presented of the manner in which measurement results are to be organized and graphically displayed.
