The heat transfer from rotating discs in an outer air stream is of major importance for many technical applications. Experimentally determined heat transfer coefficients are presented for a large range of rotational and crossflow Reynolds numbers including also the effects of finite disc thickness and incidence to the uniform air stream. The extreme conditions of a rotating disc in still air and a stationary disc in an air crossflow are considered, too.
