The transient temperature distribution in a rotating cylindrical shell which is heated by an incident time varying heat flux (nuclear pulse) as well as a constant heat flux, is determined numerically by a finite difference method. The shell is cooled by combined convection and thermal radiation. The effects of cooling and rotation on the temperature distribution as well as the time‐ and space‐dependence are shown. Rotation provides a sinusoidal temperature variation in time for a fixed surface and circumferential position. Increased rotation reduces the maximum temperature in the shell and also provides a more uniform temperature distribution in the circumferential direction.
