Gemini B Interface Heat Exchanger Flow Distribution Test.
MCDONNELL CO ST LOUIS MO
Pagination or Media Count:
A series of flow tests were conducted to determine the optimum header-core and flow path configuration for uniform velocity distribution through two different heat exchanger configurations, to aid in the design of the Gemini BLaboratory interface heat exchanger. The flow tests consisted of flowing colored water through a visualization model of different proposed interface heat exchanger loop configurations at a Reynolds Number equivalent to that of coolant fluid flowing at 140 lbhr and 70F. Motion pictures were taken into a mirror setup, to simultaneously record the flow distribution on both sides of the model. Author
