We present in this paper, flow boiling results obtained during parabolic flights campaigns. The experimental aim is to obtain the local heat transfer coefficient and the influence of gravity on HFE-7100 flow boiling in minichannels. The hydraulic diameter investigated is: 0.84 mm. The influence of hypergravity and microgravity solely on the frictional pressure loss is evidenced in this paper, and explained using the flow patterns.
