A Test Facility to Measure Heat Transfer Performance of Advanced Condenser Tubes
Beck, Andrew Conrad
MetadataShow full item record
An experimental test facility capable of investigating plain and enhanced condenser tube heat transfer characteristics was designed and built. The completed facility, including a stainless steel test condenser, has the capability of testing tubes under simulated marine conditions utilizing variable steam flowrate and orientation, cooling water flowrate and temperature, vacuum pressure, non-condensable gas concentration, and condensate inundation effects.
