Abstract:

A laboratory study of the rate of heat transfer by convection and radiation to an object in direct contact with a flame was undertaken. The purpose was to devise a simplified mathematical procedure for computing the total heat transfer under these conditions based on these measurements. Another object of this work was to obtain sufficient information to design full scale field tests which can be used to test the validity of the mathematical model and the heat transfer rates as obtained in the laboratory.
