Abstract : The effect of geometric factors in boiling heat transfer has been reviewed. The factors such as length, rod bundle geometry, bends, obstructions, weld intrusions have all been found to have some effect on boiling heat transfer coefficients. Empirical correlations are available to predict many of the effects of these factors but others are virtually ignored. An experimental program is recommended to evaluate the effects of geometric factors on boiling heat transfer coefficients, commencing with an investigation of tube bundle performance with variable geometric parameters.
