Transient forced convection heat transfer coefficients for both subcritical and supercritical helium in a rectangular flow channel heated on one side were measured during the application of a step in heat flux. Zero flow data were also obtained. The heater surface which served simultaneously as a thermometer was a fast response carbon film. Operating conditions covered the following range: Pressure, 1.0 × 105 Pa (1 bar) to 1.0 × 106 Pa (10 bar); Temperature, 4 K–10 K; Heat Flux, 0.1 W/cm2 −10 W/cm2 ; Reynolds number, 0–8 × 105 . The experimental data and a predictive correlation are presented.
