The boiling of a highly wetting dielectric fluid, in an oscillating environment, has been investigated. Because of low surface tension, these liquids require very high superheat to initiate nucleate boiling. This high degree of superheat required can be reduced by oscillation of the fluid. This oscillation removes the bubbles, which are forming in the nucleation sites on the wire, which allows new bubbles to form. The amplitude and frequency of the oscillation has been varied in an attempt to find optimum values. All attempted oscillation amplitudes and frequencies reduced the required superheat necessary to initiate nucleate boiling. Some oscillation amplitudes and frequencies were more effective than others. No global optimum amplitude or frequency was specifically located. Several local optimum values were found. Once oscillation amplitude was found to produce equal required superheat values at various frequencies, thus appearing to be independent of frequency.

Working fluids include water, ethanol and HFE and pool boiling tests were performed on a flat 1 cm × 1 cm heaters. Unlike in water, CHF enhancement of the nanocoating seems to be less or marginal in ethanol and HFE at 1 atm. The boiling inception of highly wetting liquids is delayed to a higher wall superheat, which is far above the saturation temperature of the working fluid.

Having just received the good news that Ive passed the PE exam, its only fair for me to pass along the knowledge, tips, advice that Ive used that ultimately proved successful.

Ive been a lurker on the board for a few years now and gathered a lot of information before I decided to take the Electrohydrodynamic augmentation was applied to a finned tube bundle, resulting in nearly a percent increase in the average boiling heat transfer coefficient of the bundle [Cheung et al.
