Heat transfer measurements were performed on six rib-type roughened tube annuli (4.67–9.01 mm Dh , 6–16 ribs, rib pitch 19.7–63.0 mm, rib height 4 ram, rib width 15 mm, rib angle 20–60 deg) with two phases of refrigerant R-114 under evaporating conditions. Based on the same heat transfer area of the test section, the effects of heat flux, quality, and rib spacing on flow boiling heat transfer coefficient were presented and discussed. Correlations of two-phase enhancement factor F and suppression factor S were developed by modifications and extensions of Chen’s model for the present geometric configurations.
