A test of the validity in a higher flow range of the Gunther equation (as modified by Gambill and Greene) for predicting burnout heat flux in linear flow was required during the development of copper electrodes for plasma arc heaters. An experiment employing ohmic heating of a stainless steel tube yielded a burnout value in good agreement with that predicted in the range of heat fluxes close to the maximum previously recorded.
