|Issue Date: ||Sep-1976|
|Abstract: ||An experimental investigation into the effect of axial
spacers on the natural convective heat transfer between horizontal
concentric cylinders was performed for a radius ratio, ro/ri of
1.5. Comparisons of the flow patterns, temperature profiles, and
overall heat transfer correlations were made for air.
The insertion of two horizontal spacers reduced the overall
rate. of heat transfer from the inner cylinder surface. Vertical
spacers increased the rate of heat transfer.
Flow instabilities observed in the plain annular cavity were
eliminated by the introduction of horizontal spacers.|
