Abstract : This report summarizes the work performed during the first three months of an experimental program in which the forced-convection and burnout heat flux characteristics of MHF-5 and MMH are to be investigated. The results of 20 tests conducted with MHF-5 at pressures from 500 to 3000 psia, velocities from 19.5 to 189 ft/sec, bulk temperatures from 70 to 278 F, and at heat fluxes up to 49.6 Btu/sq. in/sec are presented and discussed. Correlations for the burnout heat flux of MHF-5 at subcritical and supercritical pressures are presented. The physical properties that were extrapolated from available data and estimated are presented in an appendix, along with discussions on the extrapolation and estimation techniques that were used. The results of the chemical analyses performed on MHF-5 samples taken from the heat transfer test system before and after testing are also presented. (Author)
