Abstract: In the present study, the influence of surface roughness (Ra) on critical heat flux (CHF) of water at pressure of 1, 5, and 10 bar is investigated. The desired value of Ra is achieved by making unidirectional scratches on the flat copper surface. Surface roughness Ra varies from 0.106 to 4.03 ?m. The high-speed camera of 1000 fps is used for the boiling visualization study. The effect of surface roughness on bubble departure diameter and bubble frequency at different pressure is reported. Kim's CHF model is modified to include the contact angle as a function of surface roughness and temperature, which predicts the experimental CHF with mean absolute error (MAE) of 10.50% at pressure up to 10 bar. The correlation developed for bubble departure diameter predicts the experimental values with MAE of 17.09%. The relation between bubble departure diameter and bubble frequency is also developed, which predicts the corresponding experimental values with MAE of 25.26%. 2019 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc.
