Heat transfer measurement and its application to CFD code evaluation
Convective heat-transfer-rates have been measured on the surface of a cylinder using platinum thin film gauges in a diaphragm-less shock tube. The measured values are compared with the simulated results of two numerical codes at different flow Mach and Reynolds numbers. The measured and simulated results give an insight into the transient flow fields around the model in the shock tube and are a valuable means to complement the numerical and experimental techniques used in the study.
