ABSTRACT

Calculation of vapor content of a two-phase flow is made for water boiling on single horizontal copper tubes 10, 16, 24, 34, and 70 mm in diameter and also on a five-row-bundle of copper tubes 34 mm in diameter at a pressure of 26 < p < 200 kPa and specific heat flux of q — onset of nucleation and up to 200 kW/m2. The characteristics of the process of boiling simultaneously in two directions are obtained by high-speed filming; the formulas are obtained. Empirical nondimensional correlations are based on various experimental results. The formulas take into account the effect of side tubes and a tube pitch.
