An induced-convection effect upon the peak pool-boiling heat flux is identified and described. A method is developed for correlating this effect under conditions of variable gravity, pressure and size, as well as for various boiled liquids. The effect is illustrated, and the correlation verified, with a large number of peak heat-flux data obtained on a horizontal ribbon heater. The data, obtained in a centrifuge, embrace an 87-fold range of gravity, a 22-fold range of width, a 15-fold variation of reduced pressure, and five liquids.
