Heated Surface

Some articles on heated surface, surface, heated:

Boiling Water Reactors - Technical and Background Information - Thermal Margins - Maximum Fraction Limiting Critical Power Ratio (MFLCPR)
... During film boiling a volume of insulating vapor separates the heated surface from the cooling fluid this causes the temperature of the heated surface to increase drastically to once again reach equilibrium heat ... In other words, steam semi-insulates the heated surface and surface temperature rises to allow heat to get to the cooling fluid (through convection and radiative heat transfer) ...
Critical Heat Flux - Description
... When liquid coolant undergoes a change in phase due to the absorption of heat from a heated solid surface, a higher transfer rate occurs ... The more efficient heat transfer from the heated surface (in the form of heat of vaporization plus sensible heat) and the motions of the bubbles (bubble-driven turbulence and convection ... limitation can be directly related to the physical burnout of the materials of a heated surface due to the suddenly inefficient heat transfer through a vapor film formed across the surface resulting from the ...

Famous quotes containing the words surface and/or heated:

    But the surface of the Earth was meant for man. He wasn’t meant to live in a hole in the ground.
    Edward L. Bernds (b. 1911)

    I know not whether the remark is to our honour or otherwise, that lessons of wisdom have never such power over us, as when they are wrought into the heart, through the ground-work of a story which engages the passions: Is it that we are like iron, and must first be heated before we can be wrought upon?
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
