This paper deals with investigation results on crisis phenomena for nonstationary heat release in falling liquid films. According to the new experimental results, in the studied range of irrigation degree alteration (Rein = 30−1660), parameters, characterizing decay of the falling liquid film with stepped heat release (distribution of time of boiling-up expectation along the liquid film, velocities of movable boundaries in the boiling-up and drying fronts, intensity of liquid ejection from the heat-releasing surface), complexly depend on the Reynolds number, wave characteristics and heat-flux density. It is shown that for low densities of the heat flux at crises under the conditions of stepwise loading, decay of a laminar-wave liquid film occurs with formation of metastable regular structures with liquid jets and large-scale dry zones between them. When loading thermal impulses of a high intensity, film decay is determined by dynamic characteristics of propagation of the self-maintained front of liquid boiling-up and the shape of structures, formed during its development.
