Boiling in Micro-Channels

Part of the Heat and Mass Transfer book series (HMT)

Abstract

The subject of Chap. 6 is boiling in micro-channels. Several aspects of boiling are also considered for conventional size channels and comparison with micro-channels was carried out. Significant differences of ONB in micro-channels have been discussed compared to conventional channels. Effect of dissolved gases on boiling in water and surfactant solution was revealed. Attention was paid on pressure drop and heat transfer, critical heat flux and instabilities during flow boiling in microchannels.
