Balakrishnan Department of Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Madras 600 036, India • An experimental investigation on the nucleation density during nucleate pool boiling of saturated pure liquids at low to moderate heat fluxes is described. The surface-liquid interaction during the boiling phenomena and its effect on the nucleation site density and thereby the heat flux is examined. Stainless steel and aluminum with different surface finishes… CONTINUE READING
