An experimental investigation of heat transfer through insulation uniformly applied to a flat end cylinder
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute, 1951)
The determination of the heat transfer through a flat wall of which one surface is isothermal at a temperature of t<sub>a</sub> and the other surface is isothermal at a temperature t<sub>b</sub> is the simple problem of ...
The determination of heat-transfer coefficients from finned cylinders in an air stream at varying fin-plane/air-stream angles, fin spacing, and air velocities
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute, 1955)
Since the turn of the twentieth century, many investigations have been made in the field of heat-transfer from finned cylinders in an air-stream with the fin-plane parallel to the air-stream. Most of these investigations ...
The design of refrigeration equipment for low temperature testing rooms
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute, 1954)
During World War II, with the armed forces waging war on several fronts and with the development of high altitude aircraft, the necessity for a great deal of low temperature testing was brought about. The production testing ...
The design of a residential water-to-water heat pump
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute, 1956)
The residential heat pump is becoming more and more important as a means of heating and cooling homes. The American family is booming increasingly aware of year—round air conditioning in all its various aspects, not only ...
The design and construction of a free surface water table for the investigation of compressible-flow phenomena
(Virginia Tech, 1956-02-05)
The purpose of this thesis project was to design and construct a free surface water table for the investigation of compressible-flow phenomena. Although the design range of operation of the water table was to include all ...
