Abstract:

The relative merits of secondary fluids, used for conveying heat from a secondary heat exchanger to the air radiator of a gas turbine unit are evaluated. A change in the secondary fluid does not produce a significant change in the pressure drop and pumping power requirements. There is only a small difference in the weight of the air radiator when the various alkali liquid metals are used as the secondary fluid, but when the secondary fluid has a low thermal conductivity andor a high density, the weight of the air radiator is greatly increased and may become almost prohibitively high.
