Evaporation processes generally occur from liquid films, drops, and jets. Films may flow on a heated or adiabatic surface as a result of gravity or vapor shear. Drops may evaporate from a heated substrate, or they may be suspended in a gas mixture or immiscible fluid. Jets may be cylindrical in shape or elongated (ribbon-like).
- Adiabatic walls, classical nusselt evaporation, laminar falling film with surface waves, turbulent falling film, surface spray cooling and heated wall.
- Evaporation from cylindrical pore under low to moderate heat flux, fluid flow effect in pore/slots during evaporation, high heat flux, and evaporation in an inclined microchannel.
