Özet

Flow boiling researches in enhanced geometries practiced recently have been summarized in this review. Classical approximations in macroscale flows have not applied to the flows with small hydraulic diameters, so, this subject has been paid attention by the researchers. Application areas of these structures are increasing continuously due to cooling need in small confined spaces. The related studies have been reviewed in a chronological manner and their parameters have been given in a table in order for the researchers to observe the scientific duration regarding the progresses on this subject. Almost all papers on this subject have been produced after 2000, therefore, this subject is considered as an actual one to improve and worth to study in the literature. This study can not only be evaluated as the beginning argument for the researchers involved in flow boiling process in mini and microchannel, but it also consists of new works on the investigated subject.
