Abstract

The object of this paper is to present and briefly discuss the experimental data obtained for the transfer of heat to boiling hydrogen from a relatively large flat surface under a variety of conditions. These conditions include the angle of orientation of the surface, surface condition, and hydrogen pressure. The effect of vertical height of the heating surface was also noted. A limited amount of experimental data can be found in the literature on heat transfer to boiling hydrogen, but the results are not in close agreement. In almost every case a very small heater was used and the effects of a number of variables were not investigated [1–3], Although the experimental data bracketed data obtained by theoretical correlations, it was not possible to determine which experimental data were more accurate.
