This poster will present improvement in pool boiling heat transfer additively manufacturing multidimensional coatings and heater surface geometries. However, to fully harness the potential of additive manufacturing processes for industrial scale thermal manufacturing, it is critical to develop an understanding of why and how processing methods influence the composition and the structure. For various manifestations, the pool boiling performance of a surface is dictated by higher critical heat fluxes (CHF) and heat transfer coefficients (HTC) at lower wall superheat. This poster will highlight our recent work on Fused Filament Fabricated (FFF) 3D printed copper that yielded higher heat transfer coefficients. Additionally, our efforts in microstructures through magnetically aligned metal inks that achieved 49.9% in CHF and 105% in HTC compared to plain copper surface. New fundamental mechanisms correlating wickability and altered three-phase contact angle that attributed to these enhancements will also be presented.
