Executive Summary :

Boiling heat transfer is a complex process in various industrial sectors like power plants, refrigeration, and electronics. The boiling heat transfer coefficient is influenced by bubble departure diameter, frequency, active nucleation site density, bubble growth, and waiting period. Methods like fluid modification and surface treatment have been explored to increase boiling heat transfer, but these methods have limitations due to fluid selection and operating conditions.
