    The shout out to Marco: Yes! we need a datafield.

    @Bruce: Thx for your work, post and tweets.
    did you do the the test with sufficient cooling to the head, imho the head cooling is crucial and more important than the cooling of the room and fan to the body.

      Thank you for the note! I’ve spoken with Marco and he has some reservations about a CIQ field. Happy to fill you in if you want to send me a note on his reasons for it.

      I’ll touch back with Bruce re head cooling and will be doing my own tests with thermal stress and DFA a1 in the near future, which we will cover on the show. Thanks for listening!
      Michael
