An experimental study was carried out on pool boiling from a plane surface. The influences of two different periphery conditions (pool boiling surface confinement) were investigated. One condition involved the use of a 200 mm diameter glass cylinder (single confinement); the other condition was achieved by inserting a 70 mm diameter cylinder inside the first one (double confinement). The experiments were performed at atmospheric pressure in a saturated pool of FC-72 (dielectric fluid). The experimental data were compared with those obtained in the case of an unconfined pool boiling surface. The presence of the confinement seems to improve heat transfer performance at low and moderate heat fluxes, whereas it has no effect at the maximum heat flux. For the latter situation, the images taken during the experiments show different flow patterns on the boiling surface.
