The results of an experimental investigation of pressure effects on dryout heat flux in a volume-heated porous bed are reported. Several porous beds of near-uniform-sized particles were studied at pressures up to 5 atm. The beds were saturated with water, Freon-113, acetone, and methanol. Simple scaling of the Freon-113 results is used to yield results valid for water pressures from 1 atm to 37.3 atm.
