Sample text

In the range B-C, the liquid near the wall is superheated and tends to evaporate, forming bubbles wherever there are nucleation sites such as tiny pits or scratches on the surface. The bubbles transport the latent heat of the phase change and also increase the convective heat transfer by agitating the liquid near the heating sur­ face. The mechanism in this range is called nucleate boiling and is characterized by a very high heat transfer rate for only a small temperature difference. There are two subregimes in nucleate boiling: local boiling and bulk boiling.

In the past, the terminology of the boiling crisis was not universal. The pool boiling crisis with constant heat flux supply, or crisis occurring in- an annular flow is sometimes called burnout, and that occurring in bubbly flow is sometimes called departure from nucleate boiling (DNB). In this book, all three terms are used interchangeably. In the range C-D, immediately after the critical heat flux has been reached, boiling becomes unstable and the mechanism is then called partial film boiling or transition boiling.

1 Nucleation The primary requirement for nucleation to occur or for a nucleus to subsist in a liquid is that the liquid be superheated. There are two types of nuclei. One type is formed in a pure liquid; it can be either a high-energy molecular group, resulting from thermal fluctuations of liquid molecules; or a cavity, resulting from a local pressure reduction such as occurs in accelerated flow. The other type, formed on a foreign object, can be either a cavity on the heating wall or suspended foreign material with a nonwetted surface.
