As an extension of the recent work of Baldassari and Marengo, this note presents Kandlikar third number map for flow boiling in micro-channels and micro-gravity. Using several data points available in the literature, Kandlikar third number map was plotted vs. the hydraulic diameter as the characteristic dimension for flow boiling in micro-channels and micro-gravity. The ranges of the Kandlikar third number, calculated using the hydraulic diameter, are presented.
