Project: Tec Talk
The last two decades have witnessed a growing interest in studying and developing micro scale heat transfer systems. These efforts significantly extended knowledge about single-phase and phase change processes at diminishing length scales. However, as new knowledge and capabilities emerged it became clear that experimental techniques at the micro scale are seriously lacking. As a result continuous improvement of experimental capabilities have been undertaken by several research groups. This talk will discuss key experimental challenges pertinent to convection heat transfer in micro domains. It will also discuss potential strategies to address some of these shortcomings.
