Heat transfer coefficients for subcooled heptane were measured in two flow geometries for different heat fluxes, flow rates, bulk temperatures, and system pressures. Regimes of convective heat transfer and of nucleate boiling were delineated for a concentric annular test section containing an internally heated rod, and for a resistance-heated coiled wire mounted in crossflow. Second-order effects such as flow direction, hysteresis, and method of pressurization were also investigated.
