Experimental data for the charging of an air receiver is presented and interpreted in detail. The data indicates a substantial departure from the adiabatic behavior. The experimental results are used to evaluate existing closed form expressions for the thermodynamic state of a gas in a receiver. A method for experimentally determining the convective heat transfer coefficient is developed, evaluated and used in conjunction with these expressions. The experimental work was performed from March 1969 through May 1969 at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California.
