... is small (typical dimension around 1 mm), surface tension effects become important, especially for noncircular section channels, and calculation methods based on data for larger hydraulic diameter channels are unsatisfactory. In addition, pressure drop affects heat transfer and vice versa so that iterative...

.... The power law coefficient for gravity is a function of wall temperature. As the heater size or gravity level is reduced, a sharp transition in the heat flux is observed at a threshold value of L h /L c = 2.1. Below this threshold value, boiling is surface tension dominated and the dependence on gravity...
