Abstract: The flow patterns and pool boiling heat transfer performance of rectangular grooved surface immersed in saturated water were experimentally investigated. The effect of the aspect ratio (groove depth/fin thickness) on boiling performance was examined. The test surfaces were manufactured on a copper block with a base diameter of 19 mm with four fin thickness (0.5 mm, 1mm, 1.5 mm and 2 mm) and three groove depths (1.0 mm, 2.0 mm and 3.0 mm). All experiments were performed in the saturated state at atmospheric pressure. A plain surface was used as the reference standard and compared with the grooved surfaces. The photographic images showed different boiling flow patterns among the test surfaces at various heat fluxes. The test results indicated that closer and more number of grooves yielded a greater flow resistance against the bubble/vapor lift-off along the groove wall. At higher heat flux, numerous vapor mushrooms periodically appeared from the perimeter of the grooves. The developed correlation for Nusselt number predicts the experimental data with MAE of 7.42%. 2018 Serbian Society of Heat Transfer Engineers.
