An Experiment to Investigate the Stability of Evaporating Films in Micro-Gravity
An experimental rig was designed and built to study the stability of transient evaporating films (< 5 mm) under micro-gravity conditions. Several diagnostics methods were employed to study such films. The convective structure was captured by a double-pass schlieren system. The film thickness was recorded by an ultrasound ...
Heat Transfer and Convective Structure of Evaporating Films under Pressure-Modulated Conditions
This work examines the fluid mechanical and heat transfer characteristics of evaporating films under cyclical superheat conditions. This research was motivated by the need to further understand the instability drivers in films undergoing unsteady and cyclical evaporation. The superheat was controlled modulating the system ...
