    The merits of various existing 1D models for nucleate boiling heat transfer are assessed with four data sets from the literature. Several implementation problems and physical inconsistencies of these models have been identified.Surprisingly, the Chen correlation predicts the measurements at least as good as more sophisticated, recent models. For heat fluxes in the range of a diesel engine the Chen correlation even predicts best. Prospects are discussed. http://www.benthamdirect.org/pages/content.php?9781608050802
