Solving the heat equation for the specific thermal system, we find that the regime of lead glass heating will ideally achieve a thermal gradient within 1% of equilibrium in 75 hours, within 5% in 40 hours, and within 10% in 30 hours. 14 Lead Glass Time-Based Temperature Profile 225 ᵒC175 ᵒC Initial Profile 10 hours, 50% Equilibrium 30 hours, 90% Equilibrium 40 hours, 95% Equilibrium 75 hours, 99% Equilibrium

Heat up and cool down Cool down in the case of immediate shut off will primarily occur by convection and conduction through the light guides due to low thermal conductivity in foam glass insulation. 15 Lead Glass Light Guide Foam Glass Insulation

Expansion Cycles Steel bracing will expand more rapidly and with greater magnitude than lead glass during heat up. Expansion is relatively minimal, and should not compromise the mechanical integrity of the calorimeter. The effective linear thermal expansion between the surfaces of lead glass and the surfaces of steel bracing will create a gap of 1.4 mm on the sides and 3 mm on the top. These gaps will be mediated with spring bracing to maintain compression on the lead glass array. 19 ∆L = 3 mm ∆L = 1.4 mm

The peripheral blocks of lead glass will contract more quickly than the inner blocks and leave small gaps due to shrinking. 20

Conclusion 26 The study of thermal annealing of lead glass blocks allows us to quantify the radiation damage reduction. During heating and cooling cycles, the C200 design maintains mechanical stability. The net heat loss through insulation is approximated at 225 W; however the real heat loss will be much greater due to insulation gaps and bracing design. We can thus estimate that the heaters should generate at least 1 kW.
