The second used a pre-heated flat plate in a transient wind tunnel to determine heat transfer rates with freestream turbulence generated by a number of parallel bar grids. Both liquid crystals and thin film gauges were used for heat-flux studies. A correlation has been derived that defines the heat transfer enhancement in terms of turbulence intensity and integral scale, as well as extending the conclusions of previous workers to apply at high intensities and with severe anisotropy.
