The primary purpose of this paper is to introduce into boiling heat transfer certain basic ideas from which several critical conditions are derived. The heat transfer in nucleate boiling is considered as being limited by the maximum rate of bubble generation from a unit area of the heating surface. With certain simplified assumptions, an equation is obtained for the first critical heat flux of nucleate boiling with and without forced convection and subcooling.
