The volumetrically heated packed bed has been widely utilized in modern industry, however, due to the variability and randomness of packed bed channels, flow boiling heat transfer characteristics is complex. To study subcooled flow boiling heat transfer characteristics of volumetrically heated packed bed, here electromagnetic induction heating method was used to heat the oxidized carbon steel balls adopted to stack packed bed, while water was utilized as refrigerant in the experiment. The mass flux and heat flux effects on the subcooled flow boiling heat transfer were analyzed. A new correlation was developed to predict the subcooled flow boiling heat transfer coefficient in volumetrically heated packed bed.
