Nucleate pool boiling heat transfer is an integral part of any vapor-compression refrigeration cycle. With a view to improving overall cycle efficiency, the heat transfer performance in the evaporator can be improved by using enhanced boiling surfaces. This thesis looks at the pool boiling characteristics of R-114 (presently used in large shipboard AC systems) from 10 enhanced single copper tubes and compares performance with a smooth copper tube. Since small amounts of oil escape into the refrigerant as it passes through the compressor of a refrigeration system, tests have also been conducted with up to 10% (by weight) of a miscible oil to see what effect this may have on overall evaporator performance..
