To improve pool boiling heat transfer in an annulus with closed bottoms, the length of an outer tube has been changed between 0.2 m and 0.6 m. For the test, a heated tube of 19.1 mm diameter and water at atmospheric pressure has been used. To elucidate effects of the outer tube length on heat transfer results of the annulus are compared with the data of a single unrestricted tube. The change in the outer tube length results in much variation in heat transfer coefficients. As the outer tube length is 0.2 m the deterioration point of heat transfer coefficients gets moved up to the higher heat fluxes because of the decrease in the intensity of bubble coalescence. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd.
