Experimental data of pool film boiling heat transfer from horizontal cylinders in various liquids such as water, ethanol, isopropanol, Freon-113, Freon-11, liquid nitrogen, and liquid argon for wide ranges of system pressure, liquid subcooling, surface superheat and cylinder diameter are reported. These experimental data are compared with a rigorous numerical solution and an approximate analytical solution derived from a theoretical model based on laminar boundary layer theory for pool film boiling heat transfer from horizontal cylinders including the effects of liquid subcooling and radiation from the cylinder. A new correlation was developed by slightly modifying the approximate analytical solution to agree better with the experimental data. The values calculated from the correlation agree with the authors’ data within ± 10 percent, and also with other researchers’ data for various liquids including those with large radiation effects, though these other data were obtained mainly under saturated conditions at atmospheric pressure.
