The heat transfer coefficient is inferred from measurements for mercury flowing in a channel of cross-section 2 mm×40 mm with flow velocities from 1 m/s to 4 m/s and heat fluxes from 192 kW/m2 to 1.14 MW/m2. Mercury bulk temperatures vary from 67°C to 143°C. Inferred heat transfer coefficients agree with open literature tube data when compared on a Nusselt versus. Peclet number plot, with Nusselt numbers examined from 8 to 17 and Peclet numbers examined from 790 to 3070.
