Three parameters can Influence Results
the size of the bubbles
the bubble emission frequency
the number of nucleation sites
For a CNT coated surface
bubbles are observed to be smaller
emission frequency seems to be improved
the number of sites appears to be enhanced.
CNT length influence
For a given heat flux
Superheat is reduced
length of CNT augments
Temperature reduction can reach around 40%
This phenomenon reveals a
better thermal stability
when heat flux augments.

CNT growth techniques on surfaces

A major interest of CNT and NW during boiling is their a

What is Carbon and what its forms ?
Carbon is one of the most important elements in our planet. Pure carbon is known to us as

very high temperatures and pressure

heating coke or coal

The authors have studied
copper and silicon NW height effects on water
pool boiling on silicon surfaces
SEM pictures have shown that the
larger the NW are, the more the micro cavities are created
These results are totally in agreement with Chen (2009) results
Carbon nanotubes are composed of
sheet of carbon atoms
, which would look like a sheet of
. If you
roll that sheet into a tube
, you'd have a carbon
Carbon nanotube properties depend on how you roll the sheet
In other words, even though all carbon nanotubes are made of carbon, they can be
very different from one another
how you align the individual atoms
Carbon Nanotubes can be categorized by their structures
Single-wall Nanotubes (

The Expermient Process
The sample is a
stainless steel surface
CNT growth process has been developed in order
to coat both sides of the samples
CNT thicknesses on the two sides of the sample are
3.5 mim, 5 mim and 10 mim high
iameter is 5 nm
The tested surface is made of
Faces of 100 mm × 5 mm are brazed on two pins
power to heat the surface
maintained in the tank at a temperature of 85 C
The fluid flows at a
very very low flow rate
to avoid forced convection influence
measurements show that surfaces previously
hydrophobic become less hydrophobic or even hydrophilic
after boiling experiments.
CHF is Impoved to nearly 50%
from the bare sample
For a given heat flux, this
reduction in Temperature Difference
can be as high as
40% for 10 lm long

shows, as previous mentioned by the authors, that bonding a film of SWCNTs to metal surfaces
increases critical heat flux (by an average of 51% compared to bare surfaces
The authors also explain the increase of critical heat flux thanks to increased capillary forces due to a better porosity
