"The object of this investigation was to obtain data for saturated film pool boiling from a low thermal capacity flat plate at atmospheric pressure. A test plate, constructed from resistance strip, was placed horizontally in a pool of liquid, and was heated electrically. Refrigerant-11 and nitrogen were used as the boiling liquids. Heat transfer results were obtained in both fluids over a temperature range of approximately 1200F⁰ (400-1600⁰F). Surface size, roughness and orientation effects were observed for flat horizontal heated surfaces with one dimension near the most dangerous wavelength. No surface material effect was observed. Excellent correlation of the data is achieved by a slight modification to the Berenson equation"--Abstract, page i.
