Ph.D. student at Escola de Engenharia de São Carlos (E.E.S.C.) from the University of Sao Paulo (U.S.P.). Graduated in mechanical engineering and got his Masters degree (research theme: heat transfer of nanofluids during single-phase flow and flow boiling in microchannels) both also at the Escola de Engenharia de São Carlos (E.E.S.C.) from the University of Sao Paulo (U.S.P.). His Ph.D. involves an analysis about the condensation of hydrocarbons and their mixtures inside horizontal tubes. As part of his PhD, he made a six months internship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
The legislations around world are becoming progressively more restrict to the emission of gases harmful to the environment. In this context, the HVACR sector experiences the gradual replacement of the halocarbon refrigerants by fluids with low impact on the environment. Among these fluids, hydrocarbons mixtures are being speculated as a promising choice. The present proposal of doctoral...
The present research proposal is related to ongoing research projects fomented by CNPq, CAPES and FAPESP, concerning the investigating of flow boiling of nanofluids (nanoparticles solution in a base fluid) in micro-scale channels. The proposal is also a consequence of a series of funding from FAPESP under my supervision concerning the study of convective boiling of pure fluids in micro-...
The estimation of the liquid film thickness (LFT) during annular flows is a critical issue in heat transfer processes involving two-phase flows, since the heat conduction through the liquid film is the main thermal resistance for both flow boiling and convective condensation. Moreover, the frictional pressure drop is also associated to the liquid film characteristics. Therefore, the cor...
