ABSTRACT

This article reviews the studies of flow boiling heat transfer of refrigerants with a stratified flow pattern in smooth horizontal tubes. The paper addresses the mechanisms of flow boiling and highlights the importance of nucleate boiling in a stratified two-phase flow. Further, the article addresses some of the familiar correlations used to predict the heat-transfer coefficient and their inconsistency for stratified flow conditions, conditions that prevail in horizontal evaporators of deep freezers and commercial refrigerators.
