  2. 2. An Experimental Study on Micro-Hydrodynamics of Evaporating/Boiling Liquid Film

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Shengjie Gong; Ma Weimin; Horst-Michael Prasser; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; liquid film; critical thickness; boiling; critical heat flux; rupture; dry spot; confocal optical sensor; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : Study of liquid film dynamics is of significant importance to the understanding and control of various industrial processes that involve spray cooling (condensation), heating (boiling), coating, cleaning and lubrication. For instance, the critical heat flux (CHF) of boiling heat transfer is one of the key parameters ensuring the efficiency and safety of nuclear power plants under both operational and accident conditions, which occurs as the liquid layers (microlayer and macrolayer) near the heater wall lose their integrity.

  3. 3. Drying of Multicomponent Liquid Films

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Fabio Luna; [2004]
    Keywords : ternary mixture; falling film; diffusion equation; gas-phase control; liquid-phase control; selectivity; stability analysis; polymeric solution; evaporation; azeotrope; batch drying; continuous drying;

    Abstract : The convective drying of thin layers of multicomponentliquid mixtures into an inert gas, and the influence ofdifferent process controlling mechanisms on drying selectivityis studied. Drying experiments under gas-phase-controlledconditions are performed by low intensity evaporation, fromfree liquid surfaces, of ternary mixtures without non-volatilesolutes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Liquid Crystals in Guided Wave Optics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemiteknik

    Author : Giusy Scalia; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; antiferroelectric liquid crystals; fully-leaky guided mode; ortho-conics; waveguide; liquid crystals; anisotropy;

    Abstract : Liquid crystals are unique optical materials due to their large effective electrooptic and opto-optic coefficients. Currently, liquid crystals are primarily used in flat-panel dis-plays, but there is also an increasing number of nondisplay applications requiring new types of devices employing materials with unique optical properties.

  5. 5. Transport Coefficients during Drying of Solids containing Multicomponent Mixtures

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Rafael Gamero; Joaquín Martínez; Evangelos Tsotsas; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; capillary; conduction; convection; diffusion; evaporation; heat transfer; hydraulic conductivity; liquid film; liquid transport; mass transfer; Maxwell-Stefan diffusion coefficients; molar fluxes; phase equilibrium; temperature gradient; ternary mixture; thermodynamic factors; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : This study investigated the transport coefficients involved in mass and heat transfer during the drying of a porous solid partially saturated with multicomponent mixtures.  It included the coefficients governing liquid transport through the solid, the matrix of multicomponent diffusion coefficients in the liquid phase, and the effective thermal conductivity.
