Abstract

This paper is focused on the description of a cycle of experimental tests related to the Vapotron effect in a state of forced convection. In this phenomenological context, particular attention has been given to the study of the pulsatile nature of the phenomenon looking for an experimentally based correlation linking together the frequency of the phenomenon and the temperature trend of the thermal carrier fluid inside the cavities between the fins in the upper part of the heating element. Results have clearly shown the existence of such a relation and can undoubtedly be considered as a solid base for further development of the resear
