Flow Boiling of Water on Titanium and Diamond-like carbon coated Surfaces in a Microchannel

By Hai Trieu Phan, Nadia Caney, Philippe Marty, Stéphane Colasson and Jérôme Gavillet

Abstract

International audienceExperiments were performed to study the effects of surface wettability on flow boiling of water at atmospheric pressure. The test channel is a single rectangular channel 0.5 mm high, 5 mm wide and 180 mm long. The mass flux was set at 100 and 120 kg/m² s and the base heat flux was varied from 30 to 80 kW/m². Water enters the test channel under subcooled conditions. The sample surfaces are titanium (Ti) and diamond-like carbon (DLC) surfaces having a contact angle of 49° and 63°, respectively. The experimental results show different flow patterns that impact the heat transfer significantly. Compared to the Ti surface, the DLC surface shows a deterioration of 10% in heat transfer
