Films with evaporation and condensation in microgravity (FEVCOM)

Research project PX/8/LP/21 (Research action PX)

Persons :

  • Prof. dr.  KABOV Oleg - Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB)
    Coordinator of the project
    Financed belgian partner
    Duration: 1/1/2006-31/12/2006

Description :

The evaporation and condensation are the basic physical processes used in various two-phase cooling devices on the earth and in space. Enhancement of heat transfer for both processes is of great importance for advanced thermal stabilization systems in space applications. The principal objective of the project is a complex experimental investigation of heat-mass transfer for a film flow under conditions which provide heat transfer enhancement.

Satellite(s) or flight opportunity(ies):
