This lesson covers the different models of heat transfer, focusing on the vapor-liquid exchange model. It explains the mechanism of heat transfer during nucleate boiling, where a bubble changes its shape and size, acting as a micro pan. The lesson also discusses the calculation of heat transfer, assuming the bubble is hemispherical and the fluid movement associated with it is also hemispherical. It further elaborates on the heat transfer due to one bubble and how to estimate the heat flux due to boiling. The lesson concludes with a discussion on the limitations of these models and the potential of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling for predicting boiling heat transfer.

- The vapor-liquid exchange model is used to understand heat transfer during nucleate boiling.
- The heat transfer can be calculated by considering the bubble as a hemispherical entity.
- The heat transfer due to one bubble can be estimated, and this information can be used to calculate the heat flux due to boiling.
- No single model can predict all boiling data effectively; the choice of model depends on the specific conditions and fluid in question.
- Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling shows promise for predicting boiling heat transfer, despite its current limitations.
