Abstract

The efficient design of low-temperature hydrogen heat exchangers requires detailed heat-transfer information relevant to temperature gradients, heatfluxes, surface conditions and geometry, materials of construction, flow rates, and other important variables. This investigation determined only the relationship between the individual film heat-transfer coefficients and the variables of temperature difference and heat flux for boiling and condensing hydrogen films on a smooth vertical tube surface. The boiling occurred on the outside surface while the condensing took place on the inside surface.
