An investigation has been made to determine the effect of low frequency oscillations of relatively large amplitude on the rate of heat transfer from a small horizontal wire to water. Frequencies from 0 to 4.25 cps and amplitudes to 2.76 in. were employed. Temperature differences up to 140 deg F provided heat flux from 2000 to 300,000 Btu/hr ft2 . A Reynolds number was defined based on the mean velocity of the wire, and it was shown that heat-transfer rates may be predicted by either forced, free, or mixed convection correlations depending on the relative magnitudes of Reynolds and Grashof numbers.
