RÉSUMÉ

In recent years, passive techniques have played a major role in the enhancement of heat transfer in engineering equipment such as air conditioners, refrigeration systems, evaporators, etc. The primary objective of the present work is to highlight the significant impact of these techniques on the heat transfer enhancement of the evaporators with enhancement factors. Passive techniques such as porous coating, reentrant cavities, microchannels, grooved surfaces, and integral fins were reviewed and the mechanism responsible for augmentation of heat transfer in each technique was presented. Different research works have been reviewed in this paper and it has been found that porous coating offers the highest heat transfer enhancement, up to 21 times the value of a plain surface, followed by reentrant cavities with 20 times and a grooved surface with 6 times in flooded evaporators. Improvement in enhancement of up to 12 times was observed in a few works where combined passive techniques were employed in falling film evaporators. This paper also discusses the effect of nanofluids on heat transfer augmentation but found only limited information from the literature, especially with respect to mechanisms that trigger augmentation in convective heat transfer. This emphasizes the need for more focus on research in this area. From review it was observed that nanofluids were capable of enhancing heat transfer up to 3.5 times, which requires further investigation, and some of these are discussed in this paper. Moreover, the influence of a liquid feeder nozzle arrangement and tube bundle layout on the augmentation of heat transfer in a falling film evaporator was also analyzed, and it was observed that the clearance available for free falling of liquid between adjacent tubes influenced the heat transfer enhancement.
