The present paper gives the results of the investigation of transition boiling and film boiling crisis. The investigation of transition boiling and film boiling crisis is now of great importance for many fields of science and engineering. These processes are realized in the cryogenic systems. The knowledge of transition boiling law is the basis for the calculation of superconducting device stability. However, the transition boiling remains till now one of the least explozed section of the heat transfer theory. P. Berenson, V. G. Pronko, K. Nisikawa, V. G. Grigoryev and a number of other Soviet and foreign scientists, up to now, have made a contribution to the study of boiling. A certain experimental material accumulated must be generalized. We have carried out a transition boiling complex study combining the development and analysis of theoretical models and the experimental investigation of physical mechanism of heat transfer process and correlations.
In order to study effects of irradiation at low temperature on insulating materials of superconducting magnets, flexural and impact tests are carried out at 4.2K without warmup after low temperature irradiation for several fiber reinforced plastics. The used materials are glass fiber reinforced epoxies and polyimide, and carbon fiber reinforced epoxies. After irradiation of 1.1×109rad, the reduction in flexural strength of G-10 CR is about 70% and that of G-11 CR about 25%. No change are observed in strength of glass fiber reinforced polyimide by low temperature irradiation. Other kinds of glass fiber reinforced epoxies show a reduction in strength but the flexural strength of carbon fiber reinforced epoxies increases a small by irradiation. Irradiation effect of these materials on impact value is similar to that on flexural strength.
