Exact and rapid calculations of temperature distribution in successive lifts are obtained by synthesis from Kelvin’s instantaneous surface source. Integrals are arranged for graphical evaluation with the aid of a planimeter. A mathematical device is introduced to simplify and expedite the graphical work. The first part of the paper deals with diffusion of the heat previously generated, the second accounts for heat released by chemical action, and a third part deals with the effect of external temperature changes.
