Abstract

Transient heat transfer studies of quenching rotary hollow cylinders with in-line and staggered multiple arrays of jets have been carried out experimentally. The study involves three hollow cylinders (Do/d = 12 to 24) with rotation speed 10 to 50 rpm, quenched by subcooled water jets (ΔTsub=50-80 K) with jet flow rate 2.7 to 10.9 L/min. The increase in area-averaged and maximum heat flux over quenching surface (Af) has been observed in the studied multiple arrays with constant Qtotal compared to previous studies. Investigation of radial temperature distribution at stagnation point of jet reveals that the footprint of configuration of 4-row array is highlighted in radial distances near the outer surface and vanishes further down toward the inner surface. The influence of the main quenching parameters on local average surface heat flux at stagnation point is addressed in all the boiling regimes where the result indicates jet flow rate provides strongest effect in all the boiling regimes. Effectiveness of magnitude of maximum heat flux in the boiling curve for the studied parameters is reported. The result of spatial and temporal heat flux by radial conduction in the solid presents projection depth of cyclic variation of surface heat flux in the radial axis as it disappears near inner surface of hollow cylinder. In addition, correlations are proposed for area-averaged Nusselt number as well as average and maximum local heat flux at stagnation point of jet for the in-line and staggered multiple arrays.
