Abstract : This report describes an analysis and computer program for calculating heat transfer in a series of tube and orifice combinations in fluid control. systems. Use of this program will enable an engineer to quickly determine proper tube sizing, necessary insulation, heat transfer in stagnation regions, etc., and gas temperatures at various points for typical gases used in control systems. The program is sufficiently general to allow lumped modeling of fittings, manifolds, regulators, etc., as thermal masses using the generalized orifices.
