  • Local heat-transfer coefficients were experimentally mapped on the end-wall surface of a three-times turbine vane passage in a static, single-row cascade operated with room-temperature inlet air over a range of Reynolds numbers. The test surface was a composite of commercially available materials: a Mylar sheet with a layer of cholesteric liquid crystals, which change color with temperature, and a heater made of a polyester sheet coated with vapor-deposited gold, which produces uniform heat flux. After the initial selection and calibration of the composite sheet, accurate, quantitative, and continuous heat-transfer coefficients were mapped over the end-wall surface. The local heat-transfer coefficientsmore » (expressed as nondimensional Stanton number) are presented for inlet Reynolds numbers (based on vane axial chord) from 0.83 x 10(5) to 3.97 x 10(5).« less
  • The concept of stability in superconductors cooled by forced flow of supercritical helium is somewhat different from conductors cooled by pool-boiling helium. The crucial point is whether such a conductor can recover from a large deposition of energy before the oxygen is heated to a level that prohibits recovery. In an investigation of stability of forced flow conductors it is usually necessary to use indirect methods of heating the conductor initially, such as by an external pulse coil. However, in using such indirect methods it is essential to determine accurately the time development and magnitude of energy deposition. We usemore » ac loss techniques to examine pulse coil heating and compare those results with extensive measurements on a specially constructed sample containing an embedded heater.« less
  • Charge-exchange measurements during ICRF-only and combined ICRF (2MW) and NBI (7 MW) heating have been made with vertically-viewing mass-resolving analyzers. We have observed an enhancement of the deuterium spectrum above the beam injection energy, providing evidence of second harmonic acceleration of beam ions by the ICRF waves. The measured spectra are in resonable agreement with the predictions of a comprehensive ICRF+NBI code, given the measurement error bars and the simulation uncertainties due to the hydrogen concentration, RF power profile, and effects of sawteeth. In the ICRF-only case, we present measurements from a toroidal field scan which show that the fluxmore » of 150 keV H-minority ions varies by a factor of 7 and is largest when the resonance layer is over the detector sightline. Future experiments are proposed to extend the results obtained here.« less
