This effort is part of a continuing study to find methods of protecting shipboard elements from the combined thermal radiation and airblast effects of a nuclear weapon explosion. This report presents the data from heat transfer experiments to measure the heat transfer rates of a water flow or spray on a heated plate. These data were used to predict the effectiveness of water cooling the exposed aluminum plating on ships which are subjected to a nuclear weapon detonation.
