(2011-05-25)Wettability manipulation is investigated as a method to enhance condensate drainage from the air-side surface of dehumidifying heat exchangers. The attendant impact on the thermal-hydraulic performance of a heat exchanger ...
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, ...
