Abstract: A new active heat transfer enhancement and control technique is proposed in this work. One of the major aims of the technique is to decrease pool boiling incipience temperature by dynamic morphing imposed to confinement wall. Dynamic deformation generates variation of pressure which increases the fluid metastability level. An experimental device was built to evaluate boiling incipience temperature. Experimental results were compared with hydrodynamic and nucleation models.
Description: This paper was presented at the 3rd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2011), which was held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, Thessaloniki in Greece. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Italian Union of Thermofluiddynamics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, University of Thessaly, IPEM, the Process Intensification Network, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Heat Transfer Society, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group, and the Energy Institute.
