Abstract

In this paper, the saturated pool boiling is investigated using lattice Boltzmann method. The written FORTRAN code is validated in two aspects: For flow, the thermodynamic consistency test and Laplace law are applied and for heat transfer, the space- and time- averaged Nusselt number is compared with Berenson analytical solution in film boiling regime. In addition, the results of bubble generation and departure are compared with some well-known analytical solutions to show the accuracy of the code. It is confirmed that bubble departure diameter and the departure frequency are related to the gravity acceleration with powers of − 0.505 and 0.709, respectively, which is in a very good agreement with the existing analytical expressions. The present model has the ability to tune different surface tensions independent of liquid/vapor density ratio, which was unreachable using other existing numerical models of boiling. Thus, the sole effects of surface tension on boiling can also be taken into consideration using the present model. It is also shown that the departure diameter is related to the surface tension with a power of 0.485, which is in good agreement with the analytical expressions. Temperature contours are shown together with flow lines to have a better viewpoint for studying the bubble’s behavior. An intensive temperature gradient is observed in the necking area at the departure time. All the four boiling regimes in the boiling curve are simulated under constant temperature boundary condition. The Prandtl number effects on vapor bubble dynamics in the film boiling regime are investigated using the improved Shan and Chen model for the first time. Results revealed that bubbles are more resistant to depart from the vapor blanket with increasing the Prandtl number.
