The prediction of boiling burnout in the jet-disk configuration by Lienhard and Eichhorn (based on the mechanical energy stability criterion) is used to recorrelate the data of Katto, Monde, and others. This new correlation includes the identification of the ranges of influence of viscosity (of a Reynolds number) and of gravity (of a Froude number.) The correlation brings the data together within a standard deviation of ±8.66 percent in the range in which viscosity and gravity exert no influence.
