Transient Phenomena Associated with the Pressurization of Liquid Nitrogen Boiling at Constant Heat Flux
This investigation concerns itself with liquid nitrogen which is boiling as a result of a constant heat flux through the walls of the containing vessel. When this boiling liquid is pressurized, boiling ceases because the fluid is now subcooled with respect to the new saturation temperature, A transient process then follows in which the liquid is heated and boiling initiated. Finally steady-state boiling at the new saturation temperature is achieved.
