Since 1934, when Nukiyama [1] carried out his classic experiment with a heated platinum wire in water at 100°C, the phenomena associated with boiling heat transfer have received an ever increasing amount of attention from many investigators. Their observations and conclusions have been comprehensively reviewed by Westwater [2].
