    <p>The dynamic contact behavior of a minute liquid droplet upon the collision with a high temperature solid is investigated using total internal reflection imaging. An inkjet water droplet collides with a high temperature surface of sapphire and quartz glass prisms then splashes away. Contact behaviors captured from back using a nanosecond lighting stroboscope vary dramatically with the contact temperature <i>T<sub>c</sub></i> based on the heat conduction theory rather than the solid temperature <i>T<sub>s</sub></i> and are classified into four regions, (I) film evaporation, (II) nucleate boiling, (III) spontaneous nucleation and (IV) supercritical state regions. Contact area decreases significantly in the region (II) to show a minimum at a temperature close to the limit of liquid superheat, then increases in the region (III) to reach a maximum at a temperature close to the critical temperature before decreasing at higher temperatures. Even at a contact temperature so high as to exceed the critical temperature, liquid still contacts the solid surface over a significant area for several microseconds before drying up of the surface. The fine bubbles generated due to spontaneous nucleation hinders the contact due to the formation of the local dried area as the contact temperature approaches the superheat limit, whereas the contact is rather enhanced at further higher temperatures due to the dynamic action of spontaneous nucleation. Similar behaviors are observed for the quartz glass prism in the same range of the contact temperature.</p>

  • Study on a single, straight-tube pulsating heat pipe with an open end (Function and role of the liquid film surrounding vapor plug)

    A single, straight-tube pulsating heat pipe (SST-PHP) with an open end that was proposed by the authors' research group provides a high heat transport rate of 75 W with an effective thermal conductivity of 40 kW/(m・K) due to a self-excited, large amplitude, periodical oscillation of a single vapor plug. Liquid film surrounding the vapor plug is pushed back to the heating section to spread over the wick for each shrinkage of the plug, which maintains the heating section near the saturation temperature of the working liquid. In the present paper, first, the variation of the amount of liquid contained in the heating section during the oscillation is examined through the measurement of the vapor volume in the parts of the pipe. The dynamic inflow/outflow of the liquid film to/from the heating section and its relation to the occurrence of the dry-out are discussed. Secondly, the temperature variation across the liquid film that flows out along with the vapor plug into the heat transport tube is estimated with reference to the analytical solution of the temperature distribution in a liquid column oscillating with the same amplitude as that of the vapor plug. The effect of the heat transfer from the tube (temperature drop) reaches the location of the liquid film surface with a time delay around a quarter of the oscillation period. It would imply that the condensation of vapor on the film surface begins at around the maximum growth of the vapor plug, as a result, leading to the large-amplitude oscillation.

  • Onset of drying of a porous particle bed immersed in saturated water and heated with a high surface heat flux

    The onset of drying of a porous particle bed immersed in saturated water and heated with a high surface heat flux is investigated. Heating of the top surface of the porous particle bed while the bottom surface is immersed in a bulk liquid induces a decrease in the local liquid saturation due to evaporation and the liquid flow toward the heated surface due to capillary action. As long as the liquid flow is sufficient to sustain wetting of the surface, the porous medium functions as a heat sink by evaporative cooling. However, at higher heat fluxes, a dried region
    may form in the proximity of the heated surface, which causes significant deterioration of the heat transfer from the heat source due to thermal resistance. Two-phase flow in a porous particle bed immersed in a saturated liquid and heated with a high surface heat flux is analyzed based on a one-dimensional model. The calculated liquid saturation distribution and heat flux at the emergence of drying almost agree with the measured distribution and heat flux. The estimation with the model suggests that the heat flux at the onset of drying increases proportionally to the square root of the permeability of the porous medium up to as high as 0.1–10 MW/m2.

    Individual or group name of awards: Shoji MORI, Kunito OKUYAMA

     More detail

    The enhancement of the critical heat flux by the attachment of porous plates on the heated surface has been investigated experimentally under the saturated pool boiling conditions. In the case that a honeycomb porous plate is applied, the CHF has increased up to 2.51 MW/m2, which is approximately 2.5 times that of a plain surface (1.01 MW/m2). It has been found that the keys for the enhancement of the CHF are the automatic liquid supply due to capillary action and the reduction of the vapor counterflow resistance due to separation of liquid and vapor flow by the honeycomb porous structure. A simplified one-dimensional capillary - limit model, in which the pressure drop due to liquid and vapor flow is balanced by capillary force, has been applied to predict the CHF. The calculated results have been compared with the observed ones.
