As nucleate pool boiling is a basic type of boiling heat transfer, it is necessary to study the nucleate pool boiling heat transfer characteristics of a refrigerant/oil mixture on the metal foam covering the oil concentration from 0% to 40%.

This implies that flow boiling heat transfer is dominated by nucleate boiling at the present experimental conditions in the case of almost pure C[O.
So "up until now, there was no way to massively nucleate diamonds," Chang says.
Organic pigments themselves nucleate PP, but in varying degrees.
The results indicated that there is a greater amount of porosity in modified alloys, and that modified alloys need less H than unmodified alloys to nucleate pores.
The boundary between these two regions is the point at which new pores begin to nucleate - the critical fraction solid for nucleation.
The process uses low cost chemical precursors to nucleate and directly deposit nanoparticles of materials such as yttria-stabilized zirconia, doped lanthanum manganite or doped lanthanum chromite to form cell, interconnect and sealing layers.
Early evidence that inclusions nucleate gas porosity during solidification stemmed from increases in casting soundness after metal filtration.
Designed for blown film, Hyperform HPN-20E can be used to nucleate LLDPE as a more efficient, easily handled alternative to blending LDPE with LLDPE.
Research indicated that by balancing REs and their compounds, foundrymen can nucleate graphite until the end, require minimal or no risering in rigid molds, extend processing time, control carbides, reduce chunk graphite in heavy sections and increase nodule count.
