Using Anisotropic Micro-Scale Topography to Manipulate the Wettability of Aluminum and Reduce the Retention of Water (Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Center. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 2007-08)A method is described for fabricating controlled micro-scale, topographical features on aluminum surfaces for the purpose of exploiting those features to affect the surface wettability. Using a photolithographic approach, ...
Vortex Generation as an Air-Side Enhancement Method for Frosted-Surface Heat Exchanger Performance (Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Center. College of Engineering. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 2003-12)Longitudinal vortex generation is a technique for enhancing heat transfer and can be accomplished by placing small flow manipulators on the fin surface of a heat exchanger. This technique is of particular benefit ...
