Abstract

Since the existing data shows inconsistent trends of heat transfer characteristics, the methods of data acquisition and of analysis for the clarification of heat transfer mechanisms were developed to obtain the knowledge universally applied to microgravity nucleate boiling. Based on the information about the bubble structure, the possibility of steady-state heat transfer, the heat transfer enhancement and deterioration, and the behavior of microlayer underneath bubbles, a predictive method of heat transfer was introduced by using measured microlayer thickness.
