Simulation of Heat Transfer in Liquid Plugs Moving Inside Dry Capillary Tubes

The present work numerically simulates the flow of a single isolated liquid plug (of glycerine and water, respectively) flowing in a round capillary tube (ID = 2.0 mm), to understand its local thermal transport behavior. When an isolated liquid plug moves in a capillary tube there is a difference in the advancing and receding dynamic contact angles of the… CONTINUE READING
