This image of molecular simulation of droplet evaporation is from the paper of Sumardiono and Fischer that was presented at EUROTHERM Seminar 77: Heat and Mass Transfer in Food Processing, held in Parma, Italy in 2005. This image depicts the evolution of a 3.8 mm equivalent diameter bubble, during its growth and departure from a 1 mm orifice, its rise and bouncing upon a heated surface. The release height in this case is 25 mm. Donoghue, Murray & Robinson, Fluids & Heat Transfer research group, Trinity College Dublin. This image is taken from a study of the characterization of transient distributed surface sources through infrared thermography by Vintrou, Lariqi, Bauzin and Bairi and was presented at EUROTHERM seminar 94 (Metti 5). In this work the spatial and temporal distributions of a heat flux distribution received by the front surface of a thin metal plate are inferred from the temperature distribution measured on the back face by ir thermal imaging (shown here).
