Author(s) : SCURLOCK R. G.

Type of monograph: Book

Summary

This book is published in the "Monographs on Cryogenics" series in collaboration with the British Cryogenics Council. Extract from the table of contents: evaporation of cryogenic liquids (nucleate boiling from wall to bulk liquid; convective heat transfer without evaporation at the point of heat influx; surface evaporation; surface sub-layer agitation and unstable evaporation phenomena); heat flows into a cryogenic storage system: overall picture; insulation: the reduction of 'A' and 'B' heat in-flows (radiation; conduction through the insulation space; conduction down the neck and vapour cooling; optimum design for minimum loss of cryogenic liquid in a storage container; convective heat flows into the vapour and liquid; vapour convection at the unwetted walls; enhanced convective heat transfer in vertical temperature gradients); multi-component liquids; the handling and transfer of cryogenic liquids; design: some comments on the design of low-loss storage vessels, containers and tanks; safe handling and storage of cryogenic liquids (health concerns; equipment failures; liquid management problems; safety laboratory features; particular single component cryogens; particular cryogenic liquid mixtures with total mutual solubility; liquid mixtures with limited solubility of second component).
