The cooling of a low-heat-resistance cylinder moving through a fluid

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


    A solution is presented for the cooling of a cylinder moving through a semi-infinite fluid region. The heat resistance of the material of the cylinder is assumed to be so low that the temperature can be taken as uniform across the cylinder. Special attention is given to both small and large values of the Prandtl number. In each case the problem is solved by two different series expansions, one valid near the orifice, where the cylinder enters the fluid region, and one downstream, where the boundary layer is thick in comparison with the radius of the cylinder.
