Abstract

The Turbulent Heat Transfer Test Facility (THTTF) has been refurbished and the data acquisition system upgraded. The THTTF is now controlled by a LabView 4.1 program which replaces the old program in BASIC. Heat transfer data acquired using this new program is presented as Stanton number distributions. The new data set is compared to previously reported data obtained with this facility and other wellepted published data. This project has successfully qualified the THTTF for zero-pressure gradient, isothermal wall temperature, incompressible boundary-layer flow over smooth flat plates without transpiration. The THTTF is now set to accommodate modifications which will facilitate heat transfer investigations with high freestream turbulence.
