Proc. ASME. IMECE2001, Heat Transfer: Volume 1 — Fundamentals of Heat Transfer, 331-336, November 11–16, 2001
Paper No: IMECE2001/HTD-24135
...Abstract Abstract Pool boiling experiment with a platinum wire was performed in earth and micro gravity. Bare surface and fouling surface with scale of calcium carbonate was used. The wettability on the scale surface was higher than that on the bare surface. The critical heat flux (CHF...

Proc. ASME. IMECE2020, Volume 2B: Advanced Manufacturing, V02BT02A029, November 16–19, 2020
Paper No: IMECE2020-24540
... such as grooves and protrusions exist on all metal surfaces. However, distinct morphologies can be seen for different metals, with the most variable microstructures for the titanium alloy. Moreover, the surface wettability to the distilled water for all metal surfaces was examined with a contact angle measuring...

Proc. ASME. IMECE2011, Volume 10: Heat and Mass Transport Processes, Parts A and B, 457-466, November 11–17, 2011
Paper No: IMECE2011-62867
... The surface nanostructure determines the system wettability and thus has significant effects on the thin liquid film spreading and phase change heat transfer. A model based on the augmented Young-Laplace equation and kinetic theory was developed to describe the nanoscale roughness effects...

Proc. ASME. IMECE2004, Heat Transfer, Volume 2, 577-582, November 13–19, 2004
Paper No: IMECE2004-60565
... The wettability of the system in capillary covers is an important element to increase the boiling heat transfer on the coverings. The sessile drop methodology allows the evaluation of either the surface energy of solids or the interfacial energy of liquids, and from both the system’s wettability...
