Results on experimental investigation of the dynamics of boiling-up at stepwise heat release on a horizontally oriented cylindrical surface in a large volume of freon-21 are presented. Experimental data on the propagation velocity, structure, and other local characteristics of development of self-sustained evaporation fronts at different temperature differences of boiling-up in saturated liquid were obtained. New experimental results on the dynamics of vapor phase incipience and evolution on the surface of a vertical heat releasing tube and on the dynamics of changing the heater temperature and pressure in a flow of liquid (water, ethanol) subcooled to saturation temperature in the channel under nonstationary heat release conditions are represented. It was revealed that the dependence of the expectation time of intense bubble growth on the water motion velocity is nonmonotonic.
