"The object of this investigation was to determine the effect of inclination on the heat transfer for film pool boiling. The test plate used as the heater was made of Inconel-600 and heated electrically. Liquid nitrogen at atmospheric pressure was used as the test fluid. The heater was oriented at various angles from the horizontal position with the heater surface facing both upward and downward and the heat transfer coefficient was determined for each angle over temperature differences ranging from 450ºF to 750ºF. As the heater angle was increased from 0º (horizontal) to 90º (vertical), the heat transfer coefficient increased both for the heater surface facing upward and for the surface facing downward but the magnitude of the change was different"--Abstract, page ii.
