Studies of Forced Convection Heat Transfer to Helium I
The development of helium I forced-convection heat transfer systems can be an important key to solving some of the problems that superconducting magnet designers are now facing. Some of the advantages compared with conventional systems are (1) high heat transfer coefficients, (2) simple cryostat design, (3) modest refrigeration requirements (refrigerator directly coupled to magnet coils), (4) cooldown operations considerably simplified, and (5) electrical insulation problems eliminated (due to a more rigid construction).
