MECH6375 - Phase Change Heat Transfer

MECH 6375 Phase Change Heat Transfer (3 semester credit hours) Introduction to the physics and significant progresses in phase change heat transfer and two-phase flow. Boiling, evaporation and condensation heat transfer will be followed by the study of external and internal two-phase flow. Boiling includes incipience phenomena, nucleate and film boiling regimes, and critical heat flux in pool and flow boiling. Condensation includes filmwise and dropwise condensation. Selected application topics related to phase change thermal transport will also be covered. (3-0) R
