ABSTRACT

Results of an experimental investigation of the possibility to intensify heat transfer in a channel of a triangular cross section by installing 2 types of longitudinal turbulizing inserts are given. It is shown that the use of a turbulizing insert with alternating edges of cuts that are bent back in opposite directions and at an angle of 45° to the channel axis leads to an approximately 35% increase in the average coefficients as compared to the heat-transfer level in the channel without the insert.
