“The purpose of this study was to design and build an apparatus to experimentally determine the convective heat transfer coefficients for water flowing in a horizontal tube at turbulent flow. Also it was planned to use the apparatus to investigate the spatial dependence of energy deposition by induction heating.
An instrument and measuring techniques were developed that gave reasonable correlations between experimentally determined heat transfer coefficients and values calculated from generally accepted heat transfer relationships developed by other experimenters. Most of the calculated values were within ± 10% of the experimental values for a wide range of flow rates.
It was hoped to determine qualitatively the energy deposition due to induction heating by measuring the steady-state temperature drop across the wall of the stainless steel tube used in the apparatus. Although the temperatures obtained on the outside of the stainless steel tube appeared to be in error, it was concluded from another experiment that the deposition of energy due to induction heating is essentially a surface phenomenon”--Abstract, page ii.
