11 Way it looks and the Way It Should Look!

12 Experimental Apparatus Used to Study Liquid-Vapour Phase Change Processes

13 1. Measure in one horizontal direction. A. No evaporation when pressure was 820 Pa. B. Pressure in the vapor 775Pa, j = 0.407±0.006 g/m 2 s 2. Without opening the system, rotate the 3- dimensional positioner 90° and measure in the second horizontal direction.

14 Near the Interface During Steady State Water Evaporation

15 Temperature During Steady State Evaporation of Water 1. Uniform temperature layer in the liquid near the interface. 2. Thermal conduction below the uniform temperature layer. 3. How does the energy cross the uniform temperature layer? °

16 Does Marangoni Convection Alone Explain the Uniform Temperature Layer?

17 Interfacial Properties During Steady State Evaporation

18 Assumed Velocity Profile Near the Interface

19 Determine Tangential Speed from Measured Temperature Profile Equate tangential surface tension gradient with viscous shear stress Surface Tension is only a function of temperature Viscous Shear Stress Expression for the fluid speed:

20 Tangential Speed Determined from Thickness of the Uniform-Temperature Layer and Measured Interfacial Temperature Gradient

21 Image of Interface and Probe During Steady State Evaporation

22 Results Suggest Marangoni Flow is Unstable Vapor-phase pressure: Pa

23 Effect of Marangoni Convection on Evaporation

24 Comparison of Speed Determined by Two methods

25 Probe Position as a Function of Time When Evaporation is Occurring at Different (Steady) Rates

26 Power Spectra of Probe Oscillations

28 If there is no Marangoni convection, energy conservation is not satisfied!

29 Conclusions 1.A fluid confined in a cylindrical container and exposed to the acceleration field of the Shuttle adopts the two-interface configuration, but not the configuration it would be expected to adopt if the system were in equilibrium and the acceleration were ~10 -6 g0. The configuration adopted corresponds to the configuration expected under equilibrium conditions if the acceleration were greater than g0. 2.During water evaporation, thermocapillary (or Marangoni) convection exists at the interface. Even in a ground-based laboratory the flow parallel to the interface is oscillatory. At higher evaporation rates, the thermocapillary convection can become turbulent.
