A simple method has been developed to model boiling heat transfer from a heat exchanger to pools using the experimental data available in the literature without modeling the flow dynamics of the pool. In this approach the heat flux outside vertical tubes is expressed as a function of outside wall temperature of the tubes and saturation temperature of the pool at or near atmospheric pressure.
