43 5. Boiling and Condensing Heat Transfer A schematic diagram of this equipment is given in the Appendix. This experiment is concerned with measurement of heat transfer coefficients for boiling. It is also possible to make an evaluation of heat transfer processes which occur in a condenser. Visual observations of flow regimes play an important role in this experiment since there are substantial effects on heat transfer coefficient when the flow regime changes. For the condenser, it is important to remember that this is a heat exchanger for which the wall temperature is unknown. Overall coefficients can be measured and they can also be predicted from the values of the individual (inside and outside) heat transfer coefficients. The purpose of the experiment is to extract as much information as possible from the measurements, and to report this information. Reading: Fairly extensive (but not very difficult) reading will be necessary before you do the experiment. Read (if you have not already done so) the following sections in the book by Incropera et al.:
