An experimental procedure for measuring the thermal contact resistance of layered specimens under normal stress is described. Results for as-rolled SA-516-70 steel layers are used to establish a functional relationship between contact resistance and stress. The relationship is employed in a finite element formulation in order to predict transient temperature distributions. Agreement between the finite element results and the experimentally determined temperature profiles is good.
