Fluid Flow, Heat Transfer and Boiling in Micro-Channels (Heat and Mass Transfer)by L. P. Yarin
Synopses & Reviews
The book presents the first systematic exposition of the problem related to microfluid flow developing under conditions of intensive heat transfer and phase changing of working fluid. A wide class of the problem are concerned with drag and heat transfer in micro-channels at laminar and turbulent flows of single and two-phase fluids, effect of energy dissipation, axial conduction, wall roughness on flow characteristics, in particular, values of operating parameters, corresponding to stable and unstable states. Attention is paid to analysis of steady and unsteady capillary flow with distinct interface in the frame of unit approach is based on quasi-one-dimensional model accounting the affect of capillarity, frictional and gravity forces on the flow development. A number of specific problems are connected with effect of axial conduction, wall roughness, as well as optimization of micro-heat exchanger is considered. The correlation for calculating drag and heat transfer of micro-channels different geometry are presented.
The book treats the problem of single- and two-phase heat transfer in micro-channels. We consider the effect of wall roughness on energy dissipation, axial heat conduction, operating parameters corresponding to stable and unstable flow and steady and unsteady flow with distinct interface. In the book we use our own results on a number of problems related to flow and heat transfer, as well as those of numerous theoretical and experimental investigations published in current literature. The presented materials are easily comprehensible to engineers and engineering students with some graduate-level familiarity of fluid mechanics and the theory of heat transfer.
Micro-channels are the future for cooling all types of circuits. This book presents the first systematic exposition of the problem related to microfluid flow developing under conditions of intensive heat transfer and phase changing of working fluid.
