  4. Abstract:
  5. Chaotic behavior of bubbles and their random motion because of the effects of an electric field (EF) motivates statistical approaches for investigating electrohydrodynamically (EHD) enhanced heat transfer. A theoretical model for boiling heat transfer under EHD is presented. The model is based on integral balance of momentum, energy, and interfacial area density, and consists of a system of three coupled equations: conservation of void fraction, bubble number density, and momentum of bubbles. Theoretical results are in qualitative agreement with the available experimental observations in the literature. © 2008 by Begell House, Inc
