Sprays used for enhanced heat transfer are reviewed, starting from the spray characteristics, measurement methods, and spray dynamics, to spray heat transfer. Some results for spray heat transfer at large Reynolds numbers and surface boiling are also presented, including some recent results summarizing the effects of various injection parameters. It is recommended that basic principles of heat transfer be used to integrate various effects, such as coolant and surface temperatures, water and air flow rates, and injection conditions, into a concise form so that the results can be generalized and be applied to a large range of conditions.
