Title: Experimental study of heat transfer in an evaporating meniscus on a moving heated surface
Author: Kandlikar, Satish; Kuan, Wai Keat; Mukherjee, A.
Abstract: A stable meniscus is formed by a circular nozzle dispensing water over a heated circular face of a rotating cylindrical copper block. The nozzle is offset from the axis of rotation of the copper block and thus a moving meniscus is formed on the surface. The water flow rate, heater surface temperature, and the speed of rotation are controlled to provide a stable meniscus with continuous evaporation of water without any meniscus breakup. The study provides an important insight into the role of the evaporating liquid-vapor interface and transient heat conduction around a nucleating bubble in pool boiling.
