Abstract : The patent relates to a sample which is constrained between a support and a rigid member. Two spaced load measuring means extend outwardly from the outer surface of the rigid member to another support which is linked to the first support by a rigid base. The application of heat to the constrained sample generates stress which is measured by the load measuring means to indicate the direct thermal stress line load and the thermal stress moment.
