About the Book

In this study, an analysis of the mechanism responsible for the propagation of evaporation waves was preformed. Specifically, the analysis focused on the propagation of an interface moving into a superheated liquid. The models were based on the two leading candidates for a propagation mechanism; the interfacial instability model and the secondary nucleation model. The two models were tested for varying rates of evaporation (degrees of superheat). Key parameters such as the average wave speed and the interface thickness were measured. The appearance and characteristic behaviour of the waves was also examined. The results showed not only quantitative differences but also qualitative difference between the waves that resulted from these models. These results were then compared to previous experimental data and a strong correlation between the experimental data and the secondary nucleation model emerged.
