Heat Transfer in a Rotary Drum using Infrared Temperature Measurements

Energy icon, disabled. An orange lightning bolt.

The purpose of the rotary drum project is to understand how different parameters such as particle fill level and rotation rate affect the heat transfer coefficient in all three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation The information that is gathered during these experiments will be used to verify simulations and overall help to build models for rotary drums in industry.
