The correlation between nucleate boiling and sound emission is under development in the ATS Lab at Western Michigan University.
|A stainless vessel was constructed to study pool boiling experiments with water.|
|A high-speed motion analyzer with a digital imager (Model CR2000) and a hydrophone system (Bruel & Khar Model 8103) deployed to study the bubble dynamics in connection with sound emission during pool boiling.|
|Pool Boiling with water on a copper heater with sound emission. Click on this pool boiling to see the motion picture (7.8MB).|
|A Copper Heater (one-inch diameter) developed in our laboratory.|
|A hydrophone (Bruel & Khar Model 8103) and a thermocouple probe are seen at distances above a copper heater (one-inch diameter).|
A water vapor bubble reveals a water jet toward the surface during the collapse, which produces an intensive acoustic signal.
|DC Power Supply (30KW) for Boiling Experiments.|
