Centrifuge Testing of a Partially-Confined FC-72 Spray 2006-01-3065

The effects of elevated acceleration fields on spray cooling heat transfer are discussed in this paper. Spray cooling has proven to be one of the most efficient methods of heat removal. This technology is being transitioned into more advanced applications, such as fighter aircraft that must withstand a wide range of variable acceleration-induced body forces. Heat transfer associated with closed-loop spray cooling will be affected by acceleration body forces, the extent of which is not yet known. To test these various effects, an eight-foot-diameter centrifuge table will be outfitted with a spray cooling system to test for the effects associated with elevated gravity.
