• Simulation of Boundary Layer Effects in the Pulse Tube of a Miniature Cryocooler 

      Conrad, T. J.; Ghiaasiaan, S. M. (Seyed M.); Kirkconnell, Carl Scott (Georgia Institute of TechnologyICC Press, 2008-05)
      As pulse tube cryocoolers are miniaturized, boundary layer effects in the pulse tube may become more important than they are for larger refrigerators. Nearly uniform flow in the pulse tube is necessary for efficient cooling, ...
