  The aim of this study was to analyze the temperature profile in the Zone of Flow Establishment (ZFE) above a 0.56 m2 hot screen placed at different height above an electrically heated model air-cooled heat exchanger operating under natural convection. Installation of screens increased the temperature difference from 30 to 140 K with respect to ambient that resulted in the air velocity increased at the inlet of the special duct from 0.67 m sec-1 to more than 2.0 m sec-1 under different heat loads ranging from 1 to 2.5 kW. The investigation of temperature profile was done above the hot screens placed at 0.35, 0.65, 0.95 and 1.25 m height over the electrically heated model air-cooled heat exchanger. The results show that the exit air temperature near to the electric heater and above the hot screens did not differ significantly but at heights of 0.09 m and upward the temperature difference differed by 2 to 6 K depending on the height of the hot screens. Maximum temperature difference was observed for hot screen placed at 0.65 and 0.95 m. Although, the temperatures at the beginning of the zone of flow establishment were almost the same for every heat load, the radial profile of temperature turned from parabolic in shape to uniformly flat for the configuration without screen and with screen respectively. This indicates turbulence increase above the hot screens.

  Rheological studies of boehmite sols based on pH was (1) to study the nature of flow properties of the boehmite sols and (2) to identify the sol-gel transition of boehmite sols with the change of pH of the liquid. It is evident that the shear rate and viscosity of the liquid exhibit a pseudoplastic (shear thinning) flow behavior for all pH level. The transformation of sol-gel at low pH probably due to the hydrogen bond between the layers of the boehmite structure. The temperature has an appreciable effect on the activation energy during the sol-gel transition. The flow activation energies ΔEη are in the range of 1.75 to 6.25 J mol-1 at temperature 298-384 K. Based on these results, the flow activation energy of boehmite sols sharply decreases with decreasing the pH. The flocculation of the suspension at pH 4 to 1 showed to be favourable in term of enhanced density of boehmite.
