Measurements of Axial Heat Transport in Helium II with Forced Convection
Although it is well known for its excellent heat transfer qualities, there are definite limitations on the maximum amount of heat that can be transported through helium II. This paper presents the results of an experiment which strongly suggest that forced convection of the fluid (under appropriate circumstances) will be capable of surpassing those limits by some sizable factor. A complete account of the experimental methods and other details is to be published elsewhere .
