Entrainment and turbulence characteristics of low-velocity isothermal and buoyant jets
The current study examined the transition region of axisymmetric isothermal and buoyant jets of low Reynolds number, directed vertically upwards into a stagnant, unstratified ambient. These flows were examined experimentally ...
Laser flash thermal diffusivity determination procedure for high temperature liquid metals
A method is proposed for determining the thermal diffusivity of high temperature liquid metals that involves levitating a small sample under microgravity conditions, melting it, and predicting its thermal response to a ...
Interfacial dynamics of liquid droplets and thermophysical property measurement
The interfacial dynamics of a viscous droplet immersed in a viscous medium are considered. The characteristic equation is derived using a normal-mode analysis, and solved for arbitrary, finite fluid properties. The cylinder ...
Radiation and convection heat transfer in particle-laden fluid flow
Combined radiation, convection, and conduction heat transfer are studied in a dispersed two phase flow of gray, laminar, axisymmetric media, where both phases are radiatively participating. The radiative transfer equation ...
