An analysis of the effect of thermal radiation on transient vaporization of a saturated liquid at a constant-temperature plate is presented. The realistic assumption of a constant-vapor-density–thermal-conductivity product gives results identical to the case in which all properties are constant. If radiation is neglected, identical coincidence with classical analytical results is found. With radiation considered, numerical solutions are obtained which are satisfactorily compared with data from the literature.
