Forced-Convection Heat Transfer to Water at High Pressures and Temperatures in the Nonboiling Region

Description: "Forced-convection heat-transfer data have been obtained for water flowing in an electrically heated tube of circular cross section at water pressures of 200 and 2000 pounds per square inch, and temperatures in the nonboiling region, for water velocities ranging between 5 and 25 feet per second. The results indicate that conventional correlations can be used to predict heat-transfer coefficients for water at pressures up to 2000 pounds per square inch and temperatures in the nonboiling region" (p. 1).

Preliminary Results of Heat Transfer from a Stationary and Rotating Ellipsoidal Spinner

Description: "Convective heat-transfer coefficients in dry air were obtained for an ellipsoidal spinner of 30-inch maximum diameter for both stationary and rotating operation over a range of conditions including airspeeds up to 275 miles per hour, rotational speeds up to 1200 rpm, and angles of attack of zero and 4 degrees. The results are presented in terms of Nusselt numbers, Reynolds numbers, and convective heat-transfer coefficients. The studies included both uniform heating densities over the spinner and uniform surface temperatures" (p. 1).

Aerodynamic heating of a wing as determined from a free-flight rocket-model test to Mach number 3.64

Description: From Introduction: "The primary purpose of the wing instrumentation was to obtain data for use in design of NACA research missiles; however, it is believed that the wing is representative of typical supersonic designs and that the data will be of general use and interest. Only the wing data are reported herein."

Heat transfer to bodies in a high-speed rarified-gas stream

Description: Report presents the results of an investigation to determine the equilibrium temperature and heat-transfer coefficients for transverse cylinders in a high-speed stream of rarefied gas measured over a range of Knudsen numbers (ratio of molecular-mean-free path to cylinder diameter) from 0.025 to 11.8 and for Mach numbers from 2.0 to 3.3. The range of free-stream Reynolds numbers was from 0.28 to 203. The models tested were 0.0010-, 0.0050-, 0.030-, 0.051-, 0.080-, and 0.126-inch -diameter cylinders held normal to the stream.

Analytical determination of local surface heat-transfer coefficients for cooled turbine blades from measured metal temperatures

Description: From Summary: "Procedures for applying these analytical methods to experimentally measured blade-metal temperatures are presented. Data are presented for the leading and trailing edge of a symmetrical water-cooled blade to illustrate the validity of the methods for those portions of the blade. In addition to the application to turbine blades, the methods can be applied to any heat-transfer apparatus having a profile that can be approximated by the shape discussed."

An analysis of laminar free-convection flow and heat transfer about a flat plate paralled to the direction of the generating body force

Description: From Introduction: "Although the final equations obtained by this method are the same as those of Schmidt and Beckmann, this more general approach not only clearly demonstrates the significance of all the important parameters and assumptions and hence leads to a better understanding of this type of flow but also indicates the quantitative limitations of the theory. In addition, the numerical solutions of references 2 and 3 are herein extended to cover a more complete range of parameters."

Experiments on mixed-free-and-forced-convective heat transfer connected with turbulent flow through a short tube

Description: Report presenting experiments conducted to obtain information on heat transfer in turbulent, mixed-free- and -forced-convection flow. The investigation revealed that the total flow regime as characterized by its Reynolds and Grashof numbers can be subdivided into a forced-flow regime, a free-flow regime, and a mixed-free- and -force-convection regime.

Vapor Compression with Secondary Heat-Transfer Media

Description: From Introduction: "The use of a secondary heat-transfer media in a vapor-compression distillation unit was suggested for investigation as a process for saline water conversion because previous studies on the vapor-compression cycle at low temperatures showed that the fixed charges on the compressor are a substantial part of the final water-product cast. Other fluids were evaluated as above, the results of which are shown in table 1. Data on the other fluids shown in table 1 will be found in the appendix."

The Influence of Acoustical Vibrations on Convective Heat Transfer to Liquids

Description: From Introduction: "The research work described in this report consisted of two phases: analytical and experimental. Because of the complexity of the problem of the interaction between acoustical vibrations and heat transfer, the effort to analyze this problem theoretically began with a search for simplified "mathematical models" of the actual physical processes involved."

Two-Phase Heat Transfer With Gas Injection Through A Porous Boundary Surface

Description: From Introduction: "The purpose of this study is to investigate some of the hydrodyamic aspects of two-phase heat transfer in the lower quality range. The results of this study should contribute to a better and more thorough understanding of the processes and mechanisms affecting two-phase heat transfer, and in this way help in improving its prediction."
