Comprehensive operating data from a large-scale pipe cooling lime are reported, including in-situ measurements of temperatures within the pipe wall. A finite element simulation of cooling, coupled with gravity induced flow, or slump, in the pipe wall is described. Computed temperatures within the wall are compared successfully with measured values, and values of heat transfer coefficients applying withiin the spray tanks and air gaps are deduced. Predictions of final wall thicknesses are also in good agreement with experimental values.
