Yet another story involving bubbles

Just before the year 2015 ended we got the happy news of the acceptance of the paper entitled “Heat-flux enhancement by vapour-bubble nucleation in Rayleigh–Bénard turbulence“. This is a great paper that required a strong multidisciplinary collaboration.

“We report on the enhancement of turbulent convective heat transport due to vapour-bubble nucleation at the bottom plate of a cylindrical Rayleigh–Bénard sample (…) filled with liquid. Microcavities acted as nucleation sites, allowing for well-controlled bubble nucleation.”

It seems that the paper can be downloaded from this repository.
