J. Heat Transfer 128(12), 1243-1256 (Feb 23, 2006) (14 pages) doi:10.1115/1.2349510 History: Received January 05, 2006; Revised February 23, 2006

In this paper we provide a review of heat transfer and wall heat flux partitioning models/correlations applicable to subcooled forced flow nucleate boiling. Details of both empirical and mechanistic models that have been proposed in the literature are provided. A comparison of the experimental data with predictions from selected models is also included.
