This Brief addresses the phenomena of instability in flow boiling in microchannels occurring in high heat flux electronic cooling. A companion edition in the SpringerBrief Subseries on Thermal Engineering and Applied Science to Critical Heat Flux in Flow Boiling in Microchannels, and "Heat Transfer and Pressure Drop in Flow Boiling in Microchannels,"by the same author team, this volume is idea for professionals, researchers, and graduate students concerned with electronic cooling.
Illustrates dynamic and static instability in boiling flows
Examines the feedback control process of parameters such as pressure, mass flux and temperature
Provides detail on boiling crises triggered by unsteady behaviors due to pressure drop, density wave and thermal oscillations
Introduction.- Studies of Two-Phase Flow Instabilities.- Instability Initiation Criterion.- Methods of Controlling Instabilities.- Conclusion.
