Analytical estimate of critical heat flux for water boiling in a tube

  • 23 Accesses

Abstract

An approximate equation for the critical heat flux is obtained. The formula is compared with test data on critical heat fluxes at pressures in the range 9.8–196 bar, water mass velocities larger than 4000 kg/m2/sec, and superheat temperatures of more than 50°C.
