Abstract : The two objectives of this investigation were: (1) to obtain experimental data for single droplets vaporizing at pressure greater than 1 atmosphere and to compare these data with theoretical predictions; (2) to evolve a simplified calculation technique to obtain droplet histories easily. Steady-state temperatures of hexane, decane, and hexadecane obtained experimentally for the effect of radial accelerations up to 20 times normal gravity on the boiling process. A forced circulation loop is being designed to determine the effect of velocity and quality on the heat transfer process. Two-phase flow studies will also be made with this equipment. (Author)
