A film boiling model on a hemispherical heater in subcooled water is presented based on convection heat transport in liquid, thermal conduction in the vapor film, radiation heat transport. The numerical solution of the model has been obtained. Different cases are then analyzed with this model. The calculation results have predicted good-enough agreement with experimental data for lower part of liquid–vapor interface but significantly under-predicted the data for the part near free surface of liquid.
