With emphasis on the processes involved, "Vaporization Heat and Mass Transfer in Capillaries and Porous Structures" examines latest experimental efforts in two-phase thermal control technology research and development. The author evaluates and compares different theoretical approaches, experimental results, and models, such as semi-empirical models for critical boiling heat fluxes. The coverage includes micro-scale heat and mass transfer, micro-liquid film and vapor bubble formation technologies, hydrodynamic boiling and vapor bubble formation mechanisms, coated surface boiling models, and other unique experimental methods.
