transition boiling

transition boiling

[tran‚zish·ən ′bȯil·iŋ]
(physical chemistry)
A stage in the boiling process that follows fully developed nucleate boiling, precedes film boiling, and has features of both of those stages, in which a decrease in the heat flux accompanies an increase in wall superheat, making it highly unstable.

As the CT outer wall temperature ([T.sub.w]) increases in Figure 5, the boundary condition models are switched such as liquid convective, nucleate boiling, transition boiling, and film boiling.
(3) There are five states with temperature rising: natural convection; natural convection and transition boiling; natural convection, transition boiling, and saturation boiling; transition boiling and saturation boiling; saturation boiling.
