Thermal Stratification and Sloshing in Liquid Helium Trailers
Significant advances have been made recently in the development of cryogenic storage and transport equipment designed expressly for liquid helium service, A major result has been the inception of large-scale liquid helium production and transport for the purpose of economic distribution of gaseous helium. The concept was originally proposed by Brown  and its initial use early in 1966 is described in detail by Nubel . Other related papers by Van Meerbeke  on liquid helium dewars and associated liquid helium transfer facilities, Mann et al.  on the technical aspects of liquid helium liquefaction and transportation, and Perkins et al.  on the practical aspects of helium distribution, report on the significant background information leading up to this effort at large-scale liquid helium distribution.
