Abstract:

Heat transfer measurements were made by means of thin-film resistance thermometry which show simultaneously, catalytic and noncatalytic transient heating. These transients are observed with millisecond resolution during a well-defined step-function of atomic oxygen concentration in a subsonic flow. The differences are observable because of the short response time of the probe and are thus in significant contrast with the behavior determined by the extant steady-state techniques. Differences in the behavior of the heat-transfer rate as a function of time are noted for conditioned and unconditioned surfaces. Author
