Measurements of local vapor phase residence time fraction, liquid phase temperature, and heated wall temperature were carried out in subcooled flow boiling of Refrigerant-113 through a vertical annular channel. Data are reported for two fluid mass velocities and two pressures over a range of wall heat flux. Estimates of typical vapor bubble size and velocity are given. Some comparisons with a one-dimensional two-fluid model of subcooled boiling flow are also presented.
