	%X Bubble generation was observed using a high-speed
camera in subcooled flow boiling at low void fraction. Constant heat
flux was applied on one side of an upward rectangular channel to
make heated test channel. Water as a working fluid from high
subcooling to near saturation temperature was injected step by step to
investigate bubble behavior during void development. Experiments
were performed in two different pressures condition close to 2bar and
4bar. It was observed that in high subcooling when boiling was
commenced, bubble after nucleation departed its origin and slid
beside heated surface. In an observation window mean release
frequency of bubble fb,mean, nucleation site Ns and mean bubble
volume Vb,mean in each step of experiments were measured to
investigate wall vaporization rate. It was found that in proximity of
PNVG vaporization rate was increased significantly in compare with
condensation rate which remained in low value.
