Abstract
It has become apparent during the course of instruction at the Naval Postgraduate School that the phenomena of heat transfer is of ever increasing importance in many fields of engineering. The attainment of higher thermal efficiencies ultimately becomes a problem in heat transfer. The concept of the heat transfer coefficient has become an accepted method for predicting the relative ease with which heat flow will occur. In conversations with Professor E. K. Drucker, of the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School, the authors were made aware of the lack of adequate data on transfer coefficients as they relate to wet steam. Such lack of data was considered sufficiently important to be investigated. The experimental work of this thesis was conducted at the U. S. Naval Postgraduate School from March to June of 1953. The authors desire to express their appreciation to Professor E. E. Drucker for his extensive assistance in the preparation of this thesis, to the Research Division of the Babcock and Wilcox Company for their invaluable aid in the instrumentation of the test section, and also to Chief Jones, USN, and Chief Wallace, USN, for their aid in the construction of the experimental set-up.
