Droplet Evaporator For High-Capacity Heat Transfer
Author and Affiliation:
Valenzuela, Javier A.(Creare, Inc.)
Abstract: Proposed heat-exchange scheme boosts heat transfer per unit area. Key component is generator that fires uniform size droplets of subcooled liquid at hot plate. On impact, droplets spread out and evaporate almost instantly, removing heat from plate. In practice, many generator nozzles arrayed over evaporator plate.
