|Keywords:||Boiling;Surface Finish;Jet Impingement;Stagnation;Heat Transfer, Combustion;Heat Transfer, Combustion|
|Abstract:||<p>Experiments were performed to study the effect of surface finish and jet velocity on the boiling performance at the stagnation point under a free liquid planar jet. A rectangular jet with dimensions 9 mm x 1 mm was used to impinge subcooled water on the center of a copper surface 8 mm width x 20 mm length. Jet velocities ranged from 0.9 to 2.5 m/s while the degree of subcooling was kept constant at 10 °C.</p> <p>Three surfaces were prepared using emery paper #1200, #500 and #320 and the arithmetic mean square of the roughness <strong>Ra</strong> = 18.72, 401.65 and 533.53 nm.</p> <p>Increasing the jet velocity has shown to increase the heat flux slightly in the single phase regime. Also by increasing the jet velocity, boiling was found to start at higher surface superheat achieving higher values of burn out heat flux BOF for jet velocities V<sub>j</sub> ≤ 1.5 m/s. This trend agrees with studies reported in literature. Some contradicting results occurred at higher jet velocities which is attributed to the flow profile.</p> <p>For jet velocities lower than 2 m/s, the surface with higher <strong>Ra </strong>was found to have a delayed Onset of Nucleate Boiling ONB, higher Burn out Heat Flux BOF, and lower rate of heat transfer in the single phase regime. Surface finish did not show significant effect on boiling performance at higher jet velocities. The contradictions observed at jet velocities higher than 1.5 m/s were attributed to the flow profile. Results regarding the effect of surface finish on heat transfer in the single phase regime under liquid jet impingement were compared to literature and a reasonable agreement was found. More studies are needed to explain the contradictions found for higher jet velocities.</p>|
