Abstract

This paper is a report of an improved heat transfer model for rapid temperature variations caused by pulse heating of fluid-cooled surfaces, with application to fluid shear-stress measurement. The key improvement is the use of a fully-transient treatment of the heat transfer in the fluid flow as part of a combined convection-conduction model. Surface-temperature results are presented for several fluid/solid combinations for a two-dimensional heater located on the fluid-solid interface. A sensitivity study suggests that pulse heating may be better than steady heating for measurement of fluid shear stress, and that measurements downstream of the heater may also be important.
