Statistics of the surface temperature field of an air/water interface under air flow

Statistics of the surface temperature field of an air/water interface under air flow Experimental results are presented that reveal the relationship between the root mean square of the surface temperature field of an air/water interface (σ) and the heat flux (q′′) emanating from that interface, over a range of wind speeds. Experiments were conducted for wind speeds ranging from 1.0 to 4.0 m/s to determine if and how the σ versus q′′ relationship was affected by wind speed. Consistent surfactant coverage conditions were maintained for wind speeds ranging from 1.0 to 2.6 m/s, and these are the focus of the results presented herein. For wind speeds above 2.6 m/s the surfactant was consistently pushed downstream, resulting in an inhomogeneous surface condition for the air/water interface. For wind speeds less than 2.6 m/s the relationship between σ and q′′ is approximately linear and is weakly dependent on wind speed. The surface temperature field was obtained by infrared (IR) imaging. Sample IR images are presented in addition to the σ versus q′′ data. IR images are presented for surfaces covered with insoluble surfactants (liquid phase and solid phase), a soluble surfactant, and a clean water surface. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
