The relationship between the heat transfer ability and the power input requirement of liquid coolants in a turbulent heat transfer condition was investigated. A correlation in terms of the liquid physical properties and the required volumetric flow was proposed and the use of this correlation in selection of liquids as coolant was discussed. The optimum condition for a high heat transfer/power input ratio was also discussed.
