Effect of Pressure on Bubble Growth Within Liquid Droplets at the Superheat Limit 1

  title={Effect of Pressure on Bubble Growth Within Liquid Droplets at the Superheat Limit 1},
  author={C. Thomas Avedisian},
A study of high-pressure bubble growth within liquid droplets heated to their limits of superheat is reported. Droplets of an organic liquid (n-octane) were heated in an immiscible nonvolatile field liquid (glycerine) until they began to boil. High-speed cine photography was used for recording the qualitative aspects of boiling intensity and for obtaining some basic bubble growth data which have not been previously reported. The intensity of droplet boiling was found to be strongly dependent on… CONTINUE READING
