The existing data for critical heat flux (CHF) on a disk heater cooled by multiple impinging jets have been correlated successfully by deriving a generalized correlation that can predict the CHF on a disk heater cooled by a single impinging jet with high accuracy. The generalized correlation for the CHF for the single jet can be applied to predict the CHF for multiple jets with an accuracy of ±20 percent, in spite of a great difference in the flow situation on a disk between a single jet and multiple jets.
