Grahic Jump Location
Digital image of non-departing bubbles arranged on concentric rings on a horizontal circular plate for superheat of 52°C and subcooling of 42°C obtained from a single frame of movie. Camera angle: 10 deg to the horizontal. Test-Fluid: PF-5060. About 5 percent of the bubbles were found to depart by merger of contiguous bubbles caused by natural convection circulation induced into the liquid pool from the side walls.

Comparison of shapes of vapor bubbles obtained from experiments with numerical predictions of interface shape for subcooled film boiling of PF-5060 at a wall superheat of ΔTW=100°C and ΔTsub=10°C. The pictures are at 1.2 ms intervals starting at 39.1 ms from the detected formation of the vapor bulge.
