Abstract : A centrifuge system was designed and constructed to investigate nucleate pool boiling of water from a mirror finished copper surface. The system was constructed to withstand acceleration force levels up to 1800 g's and to operate at heat fluxes to 200,000 BTU/hr-sq ft. No nucleate boiling data was taken due to minor experimental difficulties and due to more serious problems that developed with the heater wire and especially with the thermocouple instrumentation. The system was operated to 460 RPM (200 g's) during calibration runs however, and was observed to function well. (Author)
