Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An experimental study of the influence of thermo-capillary forces and shear stresses with the side of the gas flow to the evaporation flow rate has been made. The experiments were carried out at various thicknesses of the liquid layer and constant gas velocity. The influence of the thickness of the liquid layer on the evaporation flow rate (the intensity of evaporation) has been analyzed. It is shown that the thermocapillary forces have a direct effect on the evaporation flow rate of the liquid layer.
