Abstract

Pool boiling critical heat flux (CHF) has been measured for pentane, hexane, methanol, FC-72, FC-87, and R113 on a 25.4 mm diameter smooth brass horizontal surface at five different reduced pressures ranging from 0.01to 0.24. The CHF data are compared with various established CHF models as well as the new mechanistic CHF lift-off model recently proposed by the authors. The dependence of CHF on pressure is examined, and it is found that the lift-off model gives a reasonably good prediction of changes in CHF with step changes in the reduced pressure. The R113 and FC-72 boiling curves suggest that a partially wetting transition boiling regime is encountered just prior to CHF.
