Even though Bora Mikic did his doctoral thesis on contact conductance, it was natural that he became involved immediately thereafter with the boiling group in the MIT Heat Transfer Laboratory. After all, contact conductance depends on randomly spaced points of contact between two surfaces, while nucleate pool boiling depends on randomly spaced cavities on a surface covered by liquid. Bora worked actively in boiling in the 1960s and 1970s. Collaborating with Warren Rohsenow, he developed what still is one of the most fundamental models for saturated pool boiling.
