It is recognized that the nucleate pool boiling data available in literature are mainly related to four known correlations, each differs from the other by a varying magnitude of constant coefficients, depending on restrictive experimental con-ditions. The present work is concerned in developing an empirically generalized correlation, which covers the entire range of nucleate boiling with a minimum possible deviation from experimental data. The least squares multiple regres-sion technique is used to evaluate the best coefficient value used in the correlations. An empirical correlation that fits a broader scope of available data has been developed by a non-linear solution technique leading to the following equation:  where the coefficients R 1 and R 3 both represent the effect of surface-liquid combination. They are assessed independently for the used surface material and liquid.
