Abstract: The effects of droplet diameter, surface roughness, and impinging velocity on the behavior of droplet impinging onto a hot surface have been studied. The surface samples used in the experiment were cylinder blocks of stainless steel having four different degrees of roughness, i.e., Ra 0.04, 0.2, 3, and 10. The diameter and impinging velocity were controlled independently by using a micro-jet dispenser. Their values were in the ranges of 300–700 μm and 1.0–4.0 m/s, respectively. The contact time was found to increase with an increase in the surface roughness and was of the order of the self-oscillation of the water droplet. The maximum spread of droplet decreased with increasing impinging velocity. The cooling curve was obtained for the range of surface temperatures from 500 oC to 100 oC, and it was found that the cooling time decreased with an increase in the surface roughness of stainless steel. Moreover, the cooling effectiveness of each droplet increased with an increase in the surface roughness.
Description: This paper was presented at the 3rd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2011), which was held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, Thessaloniki in Greece. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Italian Union of Thermofluiddynamics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, University of Thessaly, IPEM, the Process Intensification Network, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Heat Transfer Society, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group, and the Energy Institute.
Sponsorship: This study was supported by the Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research (A) 21246036 from MEXT.
