Summary

This course covers the theoretical and practical analysis of two-phase flow and applications. Fundamental two-phase heat transfer in the form of condensation and boiling are studied in detail. Advanced topics such as microchannel two-phase flow, microfinned tubes and oil effects are also handled.

Content

1. Introduction to two-phase flow patterns (annular, mist, bubbly,
stratified, etc).
2. Two-phase flow pattern maps and transition theory.
3. Homogeneous and heterogeneous flow models.
4. Film condensation (Nusselt equation, multitube models,
condensation on enhanced fin geometries).
5. Convective condensation (flow pattern effects, various models and
methods for plain and internally enhanced channels).
6. Fundamentals of pool boiling (nucleation, bubble dynamics,
nucleate boiling, peak heat flux models, film boiling).
7. Convective boiling (heat transfer models and design methods for
evaporation inside tubes and outside tube bundles).
8. Combined heat and mass transfer in phase change processes
(condensation in presence of non-condensable gas and evaporation of mixtures.

Keywords

Two-phase heat transfer, two-phase flow, condensation, convection, evaporation
