English Abstract

A heat transfer apparatus was fabricated to predict the heat transfer coefficient of lithium bromide-water solutions during forced convection and low quality boiling at different concentrations. The apparatus was connected to a computer system that collects the required heat transfer data such as surfce and fluid temperatures. The data were analyzed and several plots were generated for temperature, heat transfer coefficient and vapor quality distributions. Two correlations were obtained, one for forced convection and another for saturated boiling. They correlated the experimental data within+ 12%. The convection correlation was compared with Dittus-Boelter equation and it was found that they differ with only 7%.
