Abstract [en]

In gas quenching, metal parts are rapidly cooled from hightemperatures, and the convection heat transfer coefficientdistributions are of importance for the hardness and thedistortion (the shape nonuniformities) of the quenched parts.Thermochromic liquid crystals (TLC) and a thin foil techniques,were investi- gated and used for studies of a circular cylinderin axial flows, affected and not affected by upstream owmodifying inserts. Quadratic prisms in cross ows were alsostudied, a single prism, two prisms arranged in-line, and forfour prisms arranged in a square pattern. In this study,particle image velocime- try (PIV) was used for visualizationof the flow, giving physical insight to the convection heattransfer data. Further, relations of the typeNu=CReewere established. The TLC and thin foil techniques werealso used to indicate the dimensions of separated flowregions.
