Abstract

This paper covers the introductory work carried out in the investigation of the heat transfer and breakdown of falling films over horizontal and vertical tubes. Experiments were conducted with subcooled liquid films using distilled water as the test fluid. The film flow rates under investigation are in the close vicinity of the 'minimum wetting rate', i.e. the minimum liquid flow rate required to wet the surface or to re-wet the surface after formation of a dry patch.
