Heat Transfer in Glass, Aluminum, and Plastic Beverage Bottles
Clark, William M.; Shevlin, Ryan C.; Soffen, Tanya S.
Chemical Engineering Education, v44 n4 p253-261 Fall 2010
This paper addresses a controversy regarding the effect of bottle material on the thermal performance of beverage bottles. Experiments and calculations that verify or refute advertising claims and represent an interesting way to teach heat transfer fundamentals are described. Heat transfer coefficients and the resistance to heat transfer offered by the bottle material and the fluid inside and outside of the bottles are illustrated.
