The Temperature Drop across the Fluid Film

  • Ralph A. Burton


In the analyses of quasi-static and dynamic seizure, the temperature drop across the liquid film has been neglected, yet chapter 2 showed it to be significant. In this chapter, the relative thermal resistances are reviewed, and their roles are explored in (1) quasi-static seizure with constant viscosity, (2) quasi-static seizure with a thermoviscous fluid, (3) dynamic seizure, (4) turbulent flow, and (5) operation with forced heat flow through the film.
