The cylinder is the most thoroughly studied boiling burnout configuration, starting with Nukiyama’s pioneering study and continuing through the present. This review paper summarizes much of what is known about the peak boiling heat flux in this arrangement taking into account such variables as size, properties of the boiled liquid, gravity, liquid subcooling, velocity of an imposed crossflow, and certain “nuisance” variables, as well.
