FSL Experiment Container for the investigation of liquid film evaporation and condensation.
The experiment focuses on the fundamental aspects of liquid film evaporation and condensation. Concerning evaporation, the interest is to observe surface tension and evaporation driven film flow and eventual instabilities on a non-uniformly heated smooth and structured surfaces.
For condensation, the goal is to assess capillary effects on a single fin condenser. This basic knowledge is required to be able to better design energy handling devices (e.g. energy control, conversion, etc).
