Abstract

For boiling on horizontal tubes, understanding of the mechanisms and consequent development of correlations for heat transfer are important owing to the wide use of this geometrical arrangement in industrial systems. These mechanisms are reviewed and the importance of the bubbly flow layer and hence the tube diameter is demonstrated. A correlation based on the convective situation, developed earlier by the authors, is examined and further evidence is presented that corroborates the approach. This general correlation may be used for any fluid and conditions within specified constraints. The nature of these constraints and the influence of some other factors are explored.
