The single-blow transient testing facility of the Naval Postgraduate School was reconstructed. With this apparatus the flow friction and heat transfer characteristics of four grades of steel wool, considered to be representative of fibrous metals, were determined. The flow friction characteristics were determined on the basis of the isothermal pressure drop across the medium, while the heat transfer results were determined by means of the single-blow transient testing technique. The heat transfer results are presented as the Colburn j-factor. The flow friction results are presented in two forms: as the Fanning friction factor, f; and as the correlating friction factor C(f). All results are presented as a function of Reynolds number based on the product of the experimentally determined permeability and tortuosity parameter of each sample.
