Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 23)


The estimation of wall temperature in forced convection boiling usually involves lengthy calculations. However, a simplified empirical technique has been developed using a liquid nitrogen data base [1], the principle of corresponding states, and the Kutateladze expression for maximum nucleate heat flux in pool boiling [2].
