Abstract

Experimental studies on flow boiling heat transfer were performed on a small heater surface using FC-72. Two channel geometries were compared; a straight channel and a curve channel with the heated patch on the concave wall at 90° of bend location. At a given flow velocity and subcooling, critical heat flux is higher in the curved flow than in the straight flow with a difference which grows as saturation conditions are approached.
