Prediction of the Critical Heat Flux in Forced Convection Flow

Description: From summary: "A superposition model is developed to predict the critical heat flux in forced convection flow. The model is applied to available experimental results in boiling water flows and good agreement is obtained between the model and test data over the multitude of geometries, flow rates, pressures, and fluid enthalpies tested to-date."
