Abstract

This disclosure describes features of a test apparatus for heat exchanger evaluation. Some features relate to methods used to introduce non‐uniform performance of the exchanger, to allow evaluation of the exchanger away from the design point. Others relate to methods to extend the range of test unit operation, to allow performance to be measured over a wide range of conditions. Other features relate to instrumentation to provide information used to calculate heat transfer performance.
