The liquid motion induced by surface tension variation, termed the thermocapillary or Marangoni effect, and its contribution to boiling heat transfer has long been a very controversial issue. In the past this convection was not the subject of much attention because, under terrestrial conditions, it is superimposed by the strong buoyancy convection, which makes it difficult to obtain quantitative experimental results. The scenario under consideration in this paper may be applicable to the… CONTINUE READING
