Two-phase liquid-vapor flow field measurements of confined jet impingement with boiling are performed using time-resolved stereo particle image velocimetry (stereo-PIV). A single circular jet of water, impinges normally from a 3.75 mm-diameter orifice onto a submerged circular heat source at an orifice-to-target spacing of 4 jet diameters. The impinging jet outflow including the vapor generated at the heat source are confined between the jet orifice plate and the bottom test section wall. Fluorescent seeding particles (10 μm in diameter) and time-resolved PIV measurements (taken at a sampling rate of 750 Hz) allow for imaging of the instantaneous interactions between the liquid and vapor structures. Liquid-phase velocity vectors within the two-phase flow field (with high vapor fractions) are presented as a function of heat flux at jet Reynolds numbers of 5,000 and 15,000 and contrasted with single-phase flow. The time-resolved measurements are used to highlight the influence of the vapor phase on the liquid flow field. It is found that bubble formation effectively blocks the developing wall-jet flow on the heated surface. The resulting liquid flow field in the confinement gap is dominated by vapor motion rather than by the entrainment from the developing wall jet.
