Forced Convection Boiling Heat Transfer from a Horizontal Cylinder to Subcooled Water

  • Published : 1999.09.01


This investigation presents the experimental results of forced convection boiling heat transfer around a circular, electrically heated horizontal cylinder to subcooled water in cross flow. In these experiments, the following primary variables were included: heat flux, flow velocity, pressure and degree of subcooling at inlet. Local surface temperatures were measured at nine peripheral positions. Local surface temperature distributions are classified into four categories depending on the supplied heat flux. The effects of the boiling curve depending on the fluid velocity, degree of subcooling at inlet and pressure are presented.
