Abstract: Flow boiling heat transfer in vertical narrow annular channels with dual tube heating has been experimentally investigated using distilled water as the working fluid. The experiments were made on two types of test section within the experimental range: heat flux, 40-210 kW/m2; mass flux, 45-180 kg/m2s; system pressure, 2-3.5MPa; gap size, 2mm and 3mm. The intention of this paper is to experimentally survey the flow boiling dryout mechanism of liquid film on the tube wall of vertical narrow annular channels with heated length of 1300mm. The values of dryout temperature, while the heating rate reaches critical heat flux, could be measured in the experiments. And the values of the critical quality xcr were calculated by thermodynamic equilibrium. The main factors which have influence on critical quality, such as mass flux, dimension of the narrow channel, heat flux and water inlet temperature were analyzed based on the experimental data. The empirical correlation which used to calculate critical quality in vertical narrow annular channels in similar conditions was given here. The calculation results of this correlation were compared with experimental data and agreed well with it while the deviation is less than 15%.

Abstract: The mechanism of fluid flow and heat transfer in the heat exchangers was investigated in this paper. Using R22 as the working fluid, the steady distributed parameter models of condenser and evaporator in a residential split air-conditioner were established based on thermophysical laws such as mass, momentum and energy conservation equations. The regions of two-phase fluid and superheated gas in evaporator and the regions of superheated gas, two-phase fluid and subcooled liquid in condenser were respectively simulated under designed conditions of air-conditioning system. Based on the calculated results, the flow and heat transfer performances of heat exchangers were analyzed. The results show that the two-phase fluid regions in both evaporator and condenser have great influence on the fluid flow and heat transfer performances in it.
