EUROTHERM Committee
This image is from a paper by Yildirim, Rindt and van Steenhoven in EUROTHERM 2008 Proceedings, which looks at the effect of heat input and the presence of a wire on vortex shedding behind a cylinder This image shows Nusselt number distributions in the entrance region of a horizontal pipe and is from Grassi and Testi in Proceedings of Eurotherm 2008  Developing flow of FC-72 in a uniformly heated horizontal cylindrical pipe was studied in the regime of transitional mixed convection. Heat transfer coefficients were measured at 6 cross sections along the heated length, with 60 azimuthal positions being monitored at each section. A significantly different thermo-fluid-dynamic behaviour was observed between top and bottom of the pipe.  This image depicts the evolution of a 3.8 mm equivalent diameter bubble, during its growth and departure from a 1 mm orifice, its rise and bouncing upon a heated surface. The release height in this case is 25 mm. Donoghue, Murray & Robinson, Fluids & Heat Transfer research group, Trinity College Dublin.
