The mechanism underlying the boiling of a liquid on a submerged surface with a porous capillary coating is investigated by examining the internal characteristics of the process. The factors leading to the onset of boiling, heat transfer, and critical phenomena are discussed. Experimental results are presented for distilled water, ethanol, and acetone for a pressure of 0.01-0.2 MPa and heat fluxes up to 10 to the 7th W/sq m.
