Condensing water, turbulence-induced, particles collision, alternative methods condensing, heated moderately water vapors condensed
This dissertation describes the development of an alternative technique to collect water vapors or changing any vapor state to liquid state using a device called the turbulence-induced particles collision generator (TIPC). The experiment of collecting water vapors using the TIPC device is conducted at different values of temperature. The spatial patterns of droplets deposited on a wall due to the TIPC are measured at different values of pressure using luminescent oil technique, and the integrated intensity of deposited droplets is calculated. Also, the luminescent oil technique has been used to visualize the deposited particles on a pipe wall. ANSYS FLUENT Workbench 19.1 has been used to calculate the velocity field for the flow through the TIPC device.
