Studies of the vaporization onset associated with heat flow are used as a tool to probe the superfluid thermohydrodynamics during entropy transport. Onset-flux-density data of the heat flow suggest that the normal fluid viscous force dominates during entropy transport from a single source (strip) to bulk He II over a layer of thickness 10−4 cm (upper bound) or less.
