Pool boiling curve for DI water and nanofluids tests systematically discussed in this work. Approximate uncertainty in measurement of q" and ΔTs are both 2%. The ONB is at approximately the same superheat (~7°C) for all experiments (i.e., water and nanofluid ONB is very similar). ONB, onset of nucleate boiling.
