Saturation pool boiling experiments of PF-5060 dielectric liquid are performed using eleven different Cu surfaces with average roughness, Ra = 0.21 to 1.79 μm, at inclination angle, θ, from 0° (upward facing) to 180° (downward facing). Nucleate boiling heat transfer coefficient, hNB, increases with increasing surface roughness and with decreasing inclination angle. The measured enhancements in hNB with increased surface roughness are in excess of 36%. In the upward facing orientation, the experimental values of hNB are correlated in terms of the surface heat flux in the experiments, q, as: hNB = A qB. The coefficient “A” increases from ∼0.14 to 0.23, while the exponent “B” decreases from 0.76 to 0.69 as Ra increases from 0.21 to 1.79 μm.
