Free Convection Film Boiling from a Flat, Horizontal Surface in Saturated He II
The boiling characteristics of helium II differ from those of conventional fluids in many ways, including the absence of a nucleate boiling regime. For a heated surface immersed in a bath of helium II, the critical heat flux associated with the onset of film boiling has been well documented in the literature; however, experimental studies of the heat transfer characteristics in film boiling with substantial heater excess temperatures have, to date, been limited to relatively small-diameter cylindrical heaters [1–5].
