Dropwise Condensation on Inclined Textured Surfaces by Sameer Khandekar, Krishnamurthy Muralidhar

By Sameer Khandekar, Krishnamurthy Muralidhar

Dropwise Condensation on Textured Surfaces provides a holistic framework for knowing dropwise condensation via mathematical modeling and significant experiments. The publication offers a assessment of the topic required to accumulate types in addition to to layout experiments. Emphasis is put on the impact of actual and chemical texturing and their impact at the bulk shipping phenomena. program of the version to steel vapor condensation is of specific curiosity. the original habit of liquid metals, with their low Prandtl quantity and excessive floor stress, can be mentioned. The version predicts on the spot drop measurement distribution for a given point of substrate subcooling and derives neighborhood in addition to spatio-temporally averaged warmth move charges and wall shear stress.

Statistical Foundations of Irreversible Thermodynamics

A few points of the physics of many-body structures arbitrarily clear of equilibrium, generally the characterization and irreversible evolution in their macroscopic nation, are thought of. the current prestige of phenomenological irreversible thermodynamics is defined. An technique for construction a statistical thermodynamics - dubbed Informational-Statistical-Thermodynamics - according to a non-equilibrium statistical ensemble formalism is gifted.

Vapor is supercooled or in a supersaturated state without a phase transformation since condensation transfers heat to the adjacent wall. The vapor temperature is equal to the condensing wall temperature and the saturation temperature (Ts) corresponding to vapor pressure ( pv) is higher than Tw. The liquid and vapor state for a liquid droplet in equilibrium with surrounding vapor in a phase diagram. “EF” is supercooled and “FG” is super heated state of vapor at a given wall temperature, Fig. 14b.

15b, c. There is some conflict in the calculation of volume of deformed drop and its experimental validation for sessile drops on an inclined surface. Dussan (1985) and Elsherbini and Jacobi 2004a, b suggested that approximating the drop shape as spherical cap can lead to 10–25 % errors in volume. Based on experimental evidence, others (Extrand and Kumagai 1995; Dimitrakopoulos and Higdon 1999) believe that such approximation is quite valid for a small drop. As pendant drops tend to be small, the spherical cap approximation is used in the present work.

In the present monograph, the leading side angle (θmax) is assumed equal to the advancing angle (θadv) of drop and trailing side angle (θmin) equal to the receding angle (θrcd) at criticality for determining the size of drop at criticality. Various researchers (Leach et al. 2006; Ma et al. 2008; Kim and Kim 2011; Rykaczewski 2012) have reported that heat transfer rate increases with diminishing contact angle hysteresis since criticality of drop slide-off/fall-off is inversely proportional to it.
