flash method

1. A means of pasteurizing milk by rapidly raising its temperature to 178°F (80.1°C), maintaining it there for a few minutes, and rapidly chilling it until the temperature is 40°F (4.4°C). See: pasteurization
2. A fast low-angle shot method of obtaining magnetic resonance images.

However, the Flash method is not cost-effective among the proposed measurements, and requires the longest pre-loading time and measurement duration.
Similarly, when comparing the total enthalpy change from room temperature (68F [20C]) to 2,885F (1,420C) among the values from theoretical calculation of the inverse method and the laser flash method, the laser flash method shows similar values, because the thin specimen used in the laser flash method was under partially thermally stabilized condition which is closer to thermal equilibrium.
Thermophysical material model of the probe material is obtained from experimental measuring by laser flash method.
