Macrolayer formation model for prediction of critical heat flux in saturated and subcooled pool boiling

Ono, Ayako ; Sakashita, Hiroto*

A macrolayer formation model for saturated and subcooled pool boiling is proposed, which is developed based on the visual observation of boiling behavior. The distribution of nucleation sites is assumed to distribute based on Poisson distribution. The predicted macrolayer thicknesses are used for the prediction of CHFs in saturated and subcooled pool boiling based on the macrolayer dryout model. The combination of the macrolayer dryout model and macrolayer formation model is able to predict the CHF well at least up to subcooling 40K.
