This dissertation presents experimental data correlations for the spatially - averaged convective heat transfer coefficient for thin walled closed containers during and after gas injection. The different modes of heat transfer were identified, and correlations were made for each. Correlations are presented for the injection period, post-top injection, post-bottom injection, post- tangential, post-radial injection, and post-ejection heat transfer for various tank geometries. Of special significance are the very high heat transfer rates that were shown to be present in some cases immediately after injection. Heat transfer rates were shown to be, for a short period, up to almost two orders of magnitude higher than the natural convection predictions would indicate.
