... is a lack of reliable tools for accurate prediction of two-phase pressure drop and heat transfer coefficient in reduced gravity. Developing such tools will require a sophisticated experimental facility to enable investigators to perform both flow boiling and condensation experiments in microgravity...

... be seen that the heat transfer is relatively unaffected in the hypergravity phase preceding pull-up, while some residual and presumably transient effect is present during pull-out. In microgravity phase, the heat transfer is enhanced at tube inlet (Tw1 thermocouple) and degraded at exit (Tw10), while...
