Current facilities provide the capability to work with different tasks related to heat transfer and fluids, ranging from the common to specialized ones. The available equipment is used for experimentation: micro-boiling; spray cooling; mono-disperse and poly-disperse atomization of different fluids; high speed imagery; Laser Induced Fluorescence (thermometry and visualization); Infrared Thermometry; data processing: Video capture in tape and digital format; stills; image processing; experiment development: building of electronic circuits for equipment control and embedded system programming. These are some applications to date, however, the laboratory can have a broader range of heat transfer and fluids applications due to its versatility.
Microboiling experiment schematic setup
In order to achieve the afore mentioned tasks, a variety of equipment is used in the laboratory, some equipment is listed below:
For the sake of shortness, the list only includes relevant equipment without describing in detail all the elements. As new relevant equipment is included in the laboratory, it is added to the list.
