A calorimetric investigation of certain energy transfer processes in the settling region of an arc-heated wind tunnel has been made. The effects of anode length and diameter on heat-transfer rates in he stilling chamber have been studied for a range of flow conditions. A radiation-cooled heat shield for use in the stilling chamber has been proposed and evaluated. A 20-percent reduction in the stilling chamber heat loss and a five-percent gain in overall efficiency are indicated with the installation of a suitable heat shield.
