Published by Elsevier Ltd. Te liquid flow has great impact on the heat and mass transfer behavior in the liquid desiccant dehumidifier. However, there is limited investigation on the liquid flow conditions in the dehumidifier. Thus, the paper investigated the liquid flow behavior on a flat and corrugate plate, respectively. The minimum liquid flow rate for wetting the whole surface, surface axial velocity, surface radial velocity, and surface shape under different liquid velocities are analyzed in detail.
