The incipient boiling temperature is considered along with the maximum liquid superheat and the experimental determination of the maximum liquid superheat. The experimental determination of the temperature field around a growing bubble is discussed, taking into account the choice of the method, the microthermocouple probe, the dynamic calibration, questions concerning the experimental apparatus and the procedure, and a comparison of experimental results with different models of bubble growth. Attention is also given to the statistical characteristics of liquid superheat fluctuation in pool boiling.
