Abstract [en]

The development of heat transfer models of micro-channel boiling relies on understanding of all individual flow regimes as well as interactions and transitions between them. The presented paper performs a detailed study on the interactions between annular flow and its trailing bubbles in a cylindrical micro-channel with a diameter of 0.4 mm. Inlet mass flux is 400 kg/(m(2).s) and constant wall heat flux is 80 and 160 kW/m(2), respectively. The growth rate of the bubble and the flow regime transition are validated against published experimental data. Comparisons of the results between transition flow and single annular flow show that the transition processes enhance bubble evaporation. A new phenomenon is observed: extreme high local heat transfer rates are observed under certain conditions. A detailed investigation of the thin film region unveil that this enhancement is a consequence of the interface distortion caused by the presence of the trailing bubble. This bubble interface deformation depends primarily on a few factors including wall heat flux, surface tension, trailing bubble.
