HEAT TRANSFER CHARACTERISTICS OF TWO PHASE FLOW THROUGH PACKED BEDS.
A number of experiments have been performed to obtain the thermal characteristics of two phase flow through packed beds. This data has been analyzed in terms of two parameters: the effective thermal conductivity (K//e), and the wall heat transfer coefficient (H//w). The experimental program involved the cocurrent vertical upflow of heated nitrogen and water through a packed bed of 1/4-inch cylinders.
