Abstract

This is a preliminary study in order to understand how free stream turbulence increases the heat transfer. Effects of free stream turbulence on the instantaneous heat transfer were investigated in a wall jet flow. Heat transfer traces obtained by a hot film probe flush-mounted with the surface showed an intermittent structure with definite peaks at certain time intervals. Number of peaks per unit time increased with increasing turbulence intensity. A wall jet test rig was designed and built. The initial thickness and the velocity of the wall jet were 10 cm and 24.4 m/s respectively. The hot film probe which was flush with the surfaces was positioned at 10 cm intervals on the surface in the flow direction. The profiles of mean velocity and axial component of the Reynolds stress were measured with a horizontal hot wire probe. Space correlation coefficients for u′ and q′ were obtained in the vertical direction to the wall. This paper concentrates on the effects of turbulence level on the instantaneous heat transfer at the wall. It is speculated that intermittent structure of the heat transfer traces are related to burst phenomena and increase in heat transfer is due to increased ejections (bursts) at the wall with increasing turbulence levels.
