This chapter deals with the various topics on boiling with regard to aspects of the fundamentals and applications to introduce the development of each author's research in recent decades. The first four sections investigate the physics of boiling as phase change phenomena, including thermodynamic phase equilibrium state (Section 6.1), molecular dynamics of phase change (Section 6.2), computational analysis of boiling in micro-nano scale (Section 6.3), and transient boiling under rapid heating (Section 6.4). Section 6.5 deals with two-phase distribution measurement using neuron radiography. The following three sections then examine a specific boiling regime during highly subcooled boiling, called microbubble emission boiling (MEB). Each section treats the overall characteristics of MEB (Section 6.6), the occurrence conditions of MEB (Section 6.7), and vapor collapses in subcooled liquid related to MEB (Section 6.8). The next four sections are devoted to heat transfer augmentation with various techniques: thermal spray coating (Section 6.9), porous media (Section 6.10), patterned wettability refinement (Section 6.11), and self-rewetting fluid (Section 6.12). The last seven sections describe topics on applications of boiling. Sections 6.13 and 6.14 introduce boiling research in steel industries. Sections 6.15 and 6.16 explore vapor explosion. Boiling of refrigerant is discussed with heat pump systems in Section 6.17 and with automobile air conditioners in Section 6.18. Boiling related to emergency cooling core systems is considered in Section 6.19.
