Heat Transfer Characteristics of a Horizontal Wire in Pools of Liquid and Supercritical Hydrogen

Heat transfer from a horizontal wire immersed in both liquid and supercritical hydrogen was measured with a quasi-steady increase of the heat generation rate for a wide range of bath temperatures and pressures. The nucleate boiling heat transfer coefficient is higher for higher pressures. The critical heat flux (CHF) is highest in the vicinity of 0.4 MPa and is expressed by Kutateladze’s equation. The CHFs become higher for higher degrees of subcooling. The heat transfer under supercritical pressures is the same as natural convection heat transfer in liquid hydrogen, but it deteriorates for heated surface temperautres higher than the pseudocritical temperature. The heat transfer correlation was derived based on the experimental data.
