Abstract:Prediction of the convective loss from solar thermal-electric receivers is not presently feasible since the scientific basis for such a prediction is not available. These receivers will typically operate in the combined convection region (Gr(,L)/Re(,D)('2) (TURNEQ) 1) with Reynolds numbers above 10('6) and Grashof numbers exceeding 10('11), well above previously reported experimental data. A novel heat transfer technique, the use of cryogenic temperatures for convective modeling, was used in the present investigation to significantly extend the region of measured data for combined convection from a vertical cylinder in a horizontal flow. Reynolds numbers above 5 x 10('5), with Grashof numbers above 10('11), were achieved in a cryogenic heat transfer tunnel which was constructed for this research.
