Pool boiling of SiO2/water nanofluid over a copper flat plate heater at various inclinations of the heater surface was investigated experimentally. In this work, the effect of heater surface orientation on changes in surface roughness and on the characteristics of nanofluid boiling was studied. We examined pool boiling of silica nanofluid at various concentrations (<0.1 vol.%) and various heater orientations from a horizontal state (0°) to a vertical state (90°). The results showed that in nanofluid boiling, increasing the inclination angle of the heater surface from 0° to 90° increases the critical heat flux (CHF) and decreases the boiling heat transfer coefficient (BHTC), while in boiling DI water, both for CHF and BHTC, decreases with the angle of the heater surface. Atomic force microscope images from the heater surface which has been boiled in nanofluids illustrated that surface roughness varies with the orientation of the surface. It was found that deposition of nanoparticles and bubble movements have important effects on nanofluid boiling over inclined surface. In addition, the performance of the boiling of DI water on a nanocoated surface was examined. The results showed that CHF and BHTC increase in comparison with the boiling of DI water on a bare heater.

Abstract The characteristics of nucleate pool boiling were investigated with nanofluids in a chamber. Nanoparticles of alumina, maghemite and carbon nanotubes were added separately to distilled water. Particle volumetric concentrations of 0.02% and 0.10% were applied. Experiments with water on the heater copper surface covered with nanoparticles were conducted to evaluate the effect of deposition. Boiling curves, critical heat fluxes and heat transfer coefficients were obtained and compared to r...

Abstract A set of experiments have been performed to quantify the pool boiling heat transfer coefficient of dilute copper oxide water-based nanofluids at mass concentrations of 0.1–0.4%. To stabilize the two-step nanofluids, pH control, stirring and sonication were utilized. For investigating the influence of surfactant as a surface active agent additive on the pool boiling heat transfer coefficient of nanofluids, SDS, SDBS and Triton X-100 were used. Influence of some operating parameters such ...

Abstract External reactor vessel cooling (ERVC) for in-vessel retention (IVR) of corium as a key severe accident management strategy can be achieved by flooding the reactor cavity during a severe accident. In this accident mitigation strategy, the decay heat removal capability depends on whether the imposed heat flux exceeds critical heat flux (CHF). To provide sufficient cooling for high-power reactors such as APR1400, there have been some R&D efforts to use the reactor vessel with micro-porous...

Experiments were performed to study boiling induced nanoparticle coating and its influence on pool boiling heat transfer using low concentrations of CuO- nanofluid in distilled water at atmospheric pressure. To investigate the effect of the nanoparticle coated surface on pool boiling performance, two different concentrations of CuO nanofluids (0.1 and 0.5 g/l) were chosen and tests were conducted on a clean heater surface in nanofluid and nanoparticle coated surface in pure water. For the bare h...
Nanofluids (suspensions of nanometer-sized particles in base fluids) have recently been shown to have nucleate boiling critical heat flux (CHF) far superior to that of the pure base fluid. Over the past decade, numerous experimental and analytical studies on the nucleate boiling CHF of nanofluids have been conducted. The purpose of this article is to provide an exhaustive review of these studies. The characteristics of CHF enhancement in nanofluids are systemically presented according to the eff...

This work reports a comparative study of nucleate boiling heat transfer with aqueous alumina nanofluids on two specially designed surfaces. The detailed surface characterization before and after boiling reveals that the modification of heating surface geometries is mainly responsible for many contradictory results reported in literature. The enhancement or deterioration of boiling heat transfer by nanofluids is dependent upon different surface modifications that strongly affected by the relative...

Abstract null null The nucleate boiling heat transfer coefficient (HTC) can be improved using either active or passive techniques. According to the present disclosure, both techniques are used in combination. In the passive technique, nanoparticles are added to water, whereas a rotating mixer is used in the active technique to improve the boiling HTC of pure water. This study uses hybrid techniques for HTC enhancement at nucleate pool boiling regime. Experiments were carried out using circular b...

Abstract null null The present investigation focuses on assessing the transient characteristics of nucleate pool boiling heat transfer in Al2O3-water nanofluids. The stable nanofluid samples were prepared for the wt.% concentrations of 0.01, 0.1, and 1. The experiments were performed for the 12h (approx.) boiling durations with varying heat flux and nanofluid concentrations. The surface temperatures remained relatively constant for low and medium heat flux with varying nanofluid concentrations. ...

An experimental setup for pool boiling of dilute dispersions of titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticle in water-ethylene glycol 50 (WEG50) as the base fluid was developed. The nanofluid was stabilized by using sodium lauryl sulfate as a surfactant. The heater surface roughness was affected by the deposition of nanoparticles during boiling which consequently changes the heat transfer characteristics. Three copper heater surface roughnesses: smooth, semi-rough and rough, were used. The effect of sur...
