Dear All, This post is not directly related to a design issue and is more targeted to general mechanical or thermal engineers. I need to test a part which is subjected to high thermal loads during service. The upper face of the part is situated in the path of a hot gas flow whereas the bottom face of the part is continuously being cooled by cold gas during service. Due to the uneven thermal loading, the part will bend outwardly from its radial direction and I would need to find a way to test the part in these conditions in a test rig to inspect this effect. We currently have a wide-range of furnaces available but as you know it is very difficult to be bringing cold air in a furnace running at over 1200C. I welcome any suggestions from any engineers who faced similar issues in the past. Any other suggestions are of course more than welcome! Thanks for your time!
