The purpose of this experiment is to study heat transfer characteristics of water through pool boiling over horizontal stainless steel tube heater from the heat flux 20 kw/m 2 to CHF (critical heat flux) the present experiment data is compared with that of the existing correlations such us rohsenow, cornwell-houston, zuber’s, kruzhilin, kutateladze and labuntsov correlation it is found that the experiment data had good aggrement with cornwell-houston, kruzhilin, kutateladze correlation with an error band of ±15, ±20, ±20 respectively. In order to minimize the error band, the pool boiling experimental data of water have been analyzed by regression analysis in the general form of heat tranfer coefficient h=aq b and the coefficient of equation a= 0.19 and intex of equation b=0.80 were calculated. This correlation found ±7 percent of error with that of experimental data.
