A critical heat flux (CHF) data set under various transient conditions employing R-12 (Freon 12 or CCl2F2) as the test fluid is provided. Transients were carried out by varying one, two, or three parameters among flow rate, pressure, and thermal power, taking care to investigate all possible combinations. Other parameters were kept constant during the test. Reference steady-state CHF tests were conducted over a wide experimental range, and results are presented here. The employed test section is a stainless steel tube (7.72 mm I.D., 8.52 mm O.D., 2.3 m long) heated by direct passage of a dc current. © 1992.
