This report describes the research performed during the
period July 1989-July 1990 under a joint research
program between the Mechanical Engineering Department of
the University of Maryland and the Center for Fire
Research of the National Institute of Standards and
Technology. The research is conducted by Graduate
Research Assistants of the ME Department under the joint
supervision of Dr. di Marzo (UMCP) and of Dr. Evans (CFR
- NIST). A new experimental set-up for the study of
dropwise evaporation in a radiant heat transfer field
has been designed, constructed and tested. The various
issues of concern such as: steady state solid
temperature distribution, radiant heater design and
configuration, infrared background noise and post test
data manipulation are outlined.
