8.8. Observations

The post-CHF heat transfer regime has been summarized with three different approaches to estimate the heat transfer coefficient. We would recommend the empirical equilibrium or non-equilibrium approach for an estimate of post-CHF heat transfer rates. However, if the wall temperature and degree of superheat (or heat flux for the other boundary condition) are of crucial importance of semi-theoretical approach might be considered for detail analysis. This latter recommendation will require new data for specific geometries to determine the droplet-gas and droplet-wall heat transfer rates accurately.
