Experimental Study on the Laminar Cooling Process of the Middle and Heavy Plate


Article Preview

To investigate the effect of laminar cooling parameters on temperature field and heat transfer coefficient, an experiment platform for analyzing laminar cooling is designed and made by the author. Making use of the equipment, the cooling experiments with the various cooling conditions have been carried. Based on the experimental results, the effects of different water flows and water temperature on cooling rate are presented in this study. And it can be found that adding impurities into cooling medium is an effective way to improving the cooling rate. The research achievements have a certain reference value for setting parameters in laminar cooling process of heavy plate.
