Single vapour bubble nucleation from a heater
Contact: Damien Serret, David Brutin
The aim of this heater is to control accuratelythe heat flux generated and transmitted to the upward and downward faces and the lateral side of the heater element. This challenging operation will allow to have a better control of the heat flux which i one of the most important parameter of the nucleation and bubble growth analysis. On this basis, additionnal measurements will be implemented to discretize the contribution of the heat flux to the several phenomena involved in the boiling prcess for the situation of a single nucelation site.
