Tremendously high heat removal rates are achieved by the bubbling
activity during boiling on a heated solid surface. With nearly a
century of scientific advancement, only recently have
experimentalists, using micro-sensing technology, uncovered the
reasons why this is so. Even still, advancement is sluggish due to
the time consuming nature of these experiments. This work takes
advantage of the advancement in computing technology to solve the
bubble growth & heat transfer problem mathematically using
numerical techniques. In particular, the physical models and
solution techniques do not incorporate empiricism or adjustable
parameters. In this way the nature of bubble expansion is explained
and understood without the results being ambiguous. In this work
the fundamental nature of bubble expansion is first understood by
considering the simplest case of spherically symmetric bubble
growth in a uniformly superheated quiescent liquid. Knowledge
gained from this geometrically simplified scenario is then
leveraged to gain insight into the nature of the more complex
scenario where bubbles expand atop a heated surface in
