High Reynolds Number Flows Using Liquid and Gaseous Helium : Discussion of Liquid and Gaseous Helium as Test Fluids Including papers from The Seventh Oregon Conference on Low Temperature Physics, University of Oregon, October 23–25, 1989

Liquid helium has been studied for its intrinsic interest through much of the 20th century. In the past decade, much has been learned about heat transfer in liquid helium because of the need to cool superconducting magnets and other devices. The topic of the Seventh Oregon Conference on Low Temperat...
