Abstract

The present work reports on the state-of-the-art review on the critical heat flux and the post-dryout heat transfer. The first two sections are somewhat tutorial, and are featured in a similar way. They provide, after a brief introduction, with information on parametric trends, i.e. on the influence of the thermal-hydraulic and geometric parameters on the thermal crisis. After that, the most widely used correlations are described in detail, either in terms of reliability and simplicity of use. Eventually, the various approaches for a modelling of the critical heat flux are reported. The third section describes correlations and models available for the prediction of the post-dryout heat transfer, trying also to highlight the main drawbacks. Finally, the fourth section describes the passive techniques for the enhancement of the critical heat flux and the post-dryout heat transfer, together with available correlations. The present work is a merge of original researches carried out at the Institute of Thermal Fluid Dynamic of ENEA and a thorough review of the recent literature.
