"This thesis represents a study of the following problems. (1) Determination of techniques and equipment which would give satisfactory correlation of experimental heat transfer coefficients with those obtained from acceptable heat transfer equations when using an induction heater as the heat source. (2) Determination of depth of energy deposition in a thick-walled tube due to induction heating.
Techniques were developed that gave a correlation between experimental and calculated coefficients that were within -5% for minimum flow and +8% for maximum flow.
Because of difficulties in positioning thermocouples, the depth of energy deposition could not be accurately determined. However, two surface temperatures obtained during one run indicated that induction heating at this frequency (9600 cps) was a surface phenomena rather than volumetric"--Abstract, page 2.
