Abstract

Heat transfer to a confined liquid-vapor system will result in an increase of the sensible enthalpy of the liquid if interfacial mass transfer is inhibited. Studies of such subcooled liquids have shown that this added energy tends to be distributed nonuniformly due to a free convection flow induced by the imposed heat flux. In such cases the liquid will exhibit a temperature gradient along its gravitational body force axis and is said to be stratified.
