"The purpose of this investigation was to study the hysteresis effect, the effect of micro-roughness and orientation of the heat-transfer surface, and the effect of infra-red-radiation-treated heat-transfer surfaces on the nucleate-boiling curve.
It has been observed that there exists no hysteresis effect for water boiling from a cylindrical copper surface in the nucleate-boiling region over the range studied. The nucleate-boiling curve has been found to be independent of micro-roughness and orientation of the heat-transfer surface. There was no detectable change in the nucleate-boiling characteristics of the heat-transfer surface when the surface was treated with infra-red radiation"--Abstract, page ii.
