One-dimensional and two-dimensional models of heat transfer are given in operation for research of the main characteristics of process of temperature measurement by means of surface thermocouples. Results of numerical evaluations of the relative error of the measurement arising owing to existence of air gap between a sensitive element of the thermocouple and object of measurement are provided. It is revealed that the measurement error in case of observance of necessary time of heating up (set minimum required time of measurement) can be lowered to level of an allowed error.
