Abstract:

Equilibrium 1perature measurements were made on several simulated mortar tubes to determine the effect of various surface configurations on heat dissipation. The most effective heat dis sipation was obtained with fins machined into the solid steel. A finned aluminum jacket caused an increase in the equilibrium tempera ture of the base steel due to an air gap between the two metals. Author
