This paper presents experimental data correlations for the spatially averaged convective heat transfer coefficient for thin-walled closed containers during and after gas injection. The different modes of heat transfer are identified, and correlations are presented for each. Correlations are presented for the injection period, post-top injection, post-bottom injection, post-tangential injection, post-radial injection, and post-ejection heat transfer for various tank geometries. Of special significance are the very high heat transfer rates that are shown to be present in some cases immediately after injection. Heat transfer rates are shown to be, for a short period, up to almost two orders of magnitude higher than natural convection predictions would indicate.
