Test data of forced draft cooling towers is all too
meager, and that available is, in many instances, incomplete.
It is the opinion of the authors that putting cooling tower
design on a rational basis can be brought about only by two
methods. Either complete and intensive study of all existing
towers or a thorough study of models, similar to the research
conducted on airplanes in wind tunnels and on boat hulls in
towing tanks, is necessary. Models used should be so constructed
that quantity, condition, and velocity of air;
quantity and condition of water; and type and arrangement of
filling may be controlled. It is by the second method that
the authors believe rational tower design may best be brought
