BUBBLE DYNAMICS IN POOL BOILING ON ROUGH SURFACE UNDER EXPONENTIAL HEAT SUPPLY
In this paper, bubble dynamics in the pool boiling of distilled water on the horizontal copper test sample of 20 mm diameter at atmospheric pressure is studied. The experiments are carried under steady and exponential heat supply of γ=1 to rough copper sample with Ra ranging from 0.106 μm to 4.03 μm. The high speed camera of 1000 fps is used to observe the bubble morphology. The effect of surface roughness on boiling heat transfer during transient heat supply is reported. The effect of surface roughness on bubble departure diameter and bubble frequency is studied. The waiting time and growth time of the bubble for different samples is also compared. The effect of steady and exponential heat supply on bubble departure diameter and bubble frequency is also reported.
