Abstract

An interesting phenomenon, which was observed during experimental research work carried out on a two-phase thermosyphon with water as the working fluid, is described. The phenomenon is a pulsed boiling at low pressure and was called the ″Geyser Effect″ . The heat transfer coefficient at the thermosyphon evaporator has been measured and a functional law, which links this coefficient with the pressure and the specific thermal flux, is proposed.
