The purpose of this study was to develop and demonstrate a method for experimentally determining the convective heat transfer in a rigid vessel while air was being injected. The heat transfer took place between the air in the pressurized vessel and the surrounding walls which were maintained at a temperature of 32 F. with a circulating ice water bath. The study considers the effects of injection geometry and injection flow rate on the heat transfer process. The problem of heat transfer after injection has been considered by Means (1), and was responsible for establishing this study. The experimental technique used in this thesis provides a method by which Means may establish the heat transfer just after the injection period.
