Explosive boiling occurs when a liquid film contacts with the wall at extremely high temperature, which is detrimental to continuous heat transfer process. In this paper, five kinds of nanostructured surfaces with equal distance between neighboring nano-concaves and flat surface are set up to study the explosive boiling of liquid argon on copper surface. For all the five cases with concave nanostructured surface, the ratio of concave nanostructured surface area to flat surface area is kept as a constant. The temporal and spatial distributions of temperature, atomic motion and number density are recorded to study the effects of different nanostructured surface designs on explosive boiling. From the perspective of reducing explosive boiling, the most favorable nanostructured surface is determined.
