Abstract : From this critical survey of literature on the promotion of high and reliable heat transfer rates both in evaporation and condensation it was concluded that of the many systems under investigation, the use of a grooved surface, the small convolutions of which promote thin film heat transfer, offers the greatest promise for con tinued study. A simple experiment for the establishment of the heat transfer characteristics of such convoluted surfaces, both in evaporation and condensation, is described. (Author)
