    • The mechanism of void formation in initially subcooled systems 

      Griffith, P.; Snyder, George A. (Cambridge, Mass., M.I.T. Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, [1963], 1963)
      When an initially subcooled, water filled system undergoes a transient in heat flux or pressure such that bubbles form, the most important variable which determines the volume of the resulting void is the number of bubbles ...
