A mathematical model is presented to predict the two-phase transport phenomena of the evaporating extended meniscus region in a micro capillary tube which approximates the evaporator of the CPL system. The behavior of a liquid-vapor interface can be estimated by using the augmented Laplace-Young equation. The governing equations for transport fields of liquid and vapor phases can be obtained by adopting the different physical approaches for the meniscus and thin film regions. In this model, the variation of vapor pressure and the disjoining pressure effect are included and the friction force at the liquid-vapor interface is also considered. The results show that the local heat transfer coefficient has an extremely large value in the thin film region. However, the amount of heat transfer rate, of the meniscus region is larger than that of the thin film region. It is also found that the length of the extended meniscus region is affected by the heat flux, the tube radius and the dispersion constant.
