This paper summarizes the procedure of experimental determination of flow boiling heat transfer coefficient in the rectangular minichannel 2 mm wide, 1.8 mm deep and 193 mm long. In this experiment, the basic thermal and flow parameters were measured and the temperature distribution on the foil insulating the heater was recorded using an infrared camera. A high speed video camera observed the vapor patterns forming during the boiling process. The void fraction was determined with the image processing technique. Stationary heat transfer process in the insulating foil, the heater and the flowing liquid was described using two-dimensional Laplace’s equation (for the foil), the Poisson equation (for the heater) and energy equation (for the liquid) – all complemented with an appropriate system of boundary conditions. The system of the differential equations with adopted boundary conditions gives the three consecutive inverse problems in elements of the test section containing minichanel. Trefftz method was used to determine two dimensional temperature distribution of the foil and the heater. The liquid temperature was calculated using the Picard-Trefftz method. The values of the experimentally obtained heat transfer coefficients with the values of these coefficients calculated on the basis of correlations known from the literature were also compared.
