The single-blow, transient testing technique for determining the heat transfer characteristics of heat exchanger surfaces, with a summary of the underlying theory, a description of an experimental facility, and comments on the applicability of the technique, are presented. Heat transfer and flow friction data are presented for plate-fin type surfaces fabricated of perforated nickel plate. The data indicate that perforations increase heat transfer performance without a large frictional power penalty.
