Abstract

Spray cooling is widely applied in industry. The mechanism with complicated surface heat transfer is needed to optimize the factors during spray cooling. In the present study, surface heat transfer of transient spray cooling with different cryogens, nozzles, and substrates were investigated. The similarity of dynamic heat flux with different cryogens, nozzles, and substrates was observed, and the dimensionless correlation was proposed by the spray Biot number, which is defined as the ratio between the internal thermal resistance of the substrate and the surface convective heat transfer resistance. Transient cooling could be divided into two stages: fast boiling cooling and film evaporation cooling. Dimensionless Reynolds number Rel and Fourier number Fol were proposed to represent the maximum heat flux (qmax) and the corresponding time (tmax), respectively. By coupling the Jakob number with Rel and the droplet Weber number (We), dimensionless correlations of maximum heat flux and the corresponding time were proposed, through which it is indicated that We number was the key factor in spray cooling.
