Validation of Heat Transfer Correlations in Line Chill-Down Tests of Cryogenic Fluid in SINDA/FLUINT

Abstract: Line Chill-down heat transfer was modelled using SINDA/FLUINT. Multiple chill-down tests were modelled using the heat transfer correlations that are available in SINDA/FLUINT, as well as incorporating heat transfer empiricisms developed by the University of Florida1 based on a series of liquid nitrogen chill-down tests. The chill-down tests that were modelled were the liquid nitrogen tests conducted by the University of Florida1 as well as liquid hydrogen tests conducted by NASA Glenn Researc…
