Abstract : A large uninsulated liquid oxygen container made of aluminum and only partially filled was exposed to climatic heating. Horizontal and vertical temperature profiles within the liquid were measured. Of the heat crossing the container wall the amount used for increasing the temperature of the liquid and the portion used for evaporating the liquid were determined. Heat transfer coefficients from wall to non boiling liquid oxygen were estimated. (Author)
