In the present experimental study an attempt has been made to study the boiling heat transfer characteristics of variety of enhanced surfaces. Three different copper test surfaces: polished copper and two structured surfaces were used in the present investigation. The heat transfer performance of each surface is studied under saturated pool boiling conditions at atmospheric pressure by using water and isopropyl as pool liquid. The effect of intersecting tunnel geometry with 0.5 mm and 1 mm depth on heat transfer performance has been studied. The comparison of heat transfer coefficient indicates that the intersecting tunnel structure enhanced the boiling heat transfer performance and reduced the wall superheat at given heat flux inputs.
