The large* amplitude of the temperature surges at A is probably
due* to the fact that this couple was at times immersed in the jet
of aHrttruHng hot. gases and at other times in the eddy of com-
parativ(»ly cool g'anes at this point. Another factor that is men-
tionwi in the caption of the curve is the formation of balls of
chilled guBCH among the tubes. These balls of cool gas will have a
tendency to drop into the lower portion of the setting, but will be
sustained by the up flowing current of hot gases. An analogy
in found in the submerged bubbles of air caused by a stream of
water falling into a body of water.
