This project was undertaken to collect additional information on the heat transfer coefficients of pseudo-plastic suspensions and to test the exponents of the equation of Salamone (12). Using the same equation as derived by Salamone by dimensional analysis, a better correlation of this data was obtained by changing some of the exponents to give the following equation:
The authors believe that a better correlation is possible and that additional data should be collected on a greater variety of solids in suspension over a large range of Reynolds Numbers.
