There are many techniques for the cooling of the parts of industrial apparatuses and electrical components. The use of liquid film flow is a possible technique, offering solutions for the problems associated with the microgravity applications and for the case of normal earth conditions. In this work the thermal entry length of laminar wavy falling films was determined experimentally under full gravity conditions by means of infrared thermography. The dependence of the entry length on the… CONTINUE READING
