Abstract : The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) ACQ code for the reduction of data from heat flux gauges has been adapted for use in the Turbine Research Facility (TRF) Data Acquisition System (DAS). MIT developed the code to determine the fluctuating (AC) heat flux component from their double sided gauges. Here the code is adapted to single sided gauges with the capability to determine both mean (DC) and fluctuating (AC) heat flux levels. The code is verified using several test cases and thoroughly documented.
