This article treats the local heat transfer for nucleate pool boiling around the cylinder using the inverse heat conduction analysis. The physical model considers a half section of a cylinder with unknown surface temperature and heat flux density. The iterative regularization and the conjugate gradient methods are used for solving the inverse analysis. The local Nusselt number profiles for nucleate pool boiling are presented and analyzed for different electric heat. The mean Nusselt number estimated by IHCP is closed with the measured values. The results of IHCP are compared to those of Cornewell and Houston (1994), Stephan and Abdelsalam (1980) and Memory et al. (1995). The influence of the error of the measured temperatures and the error in placement of the thermocouples are studied.
