Title: Nucleate boiling of water in twisted-tape swirled flow

This paper analyzes nucleate boiling in twisted-tape swirled water flow. The transverse flow velocity in the wall region, generated by the density gradient and acceleration, is estimated. It is concluded that the turbulence has a significant effect on the growth of vapor bubbles, decreasing the rate of nucleate boiling without simultaneously increasing the convective component to compensate for this effect.
