Present study provides guidelines and recommendations for solving film boiling problems in steel plate production, where the surface temperature of steel plate is much higher than the saturation temperature of the liquid in contact with the plate surface and the entire steel plate surface is immersed in water. Due to the boiling mass exchange occurring at the vapor liquid interface bubbles of steam are periodically produced and emitted upward such a regime is known as film boiling. A computational fluid dynamics analysis of steel plate using VOF multiphase model moving at different velocity i.e. 0.1 to 0.5 m/sec. the volume of fraction for vapor phase have been obtained for different time interval, the generation of bubbles starts moving upwards after 0.05 sec, as time goes the formation of vapor bubbles generate and collapse more rapidly because the thermal boundary is very thin and the fluid temperature around the bubbles almost equal to the saturation temperature. The thermal properties of the steel plate are implicit to be constant with temperature for convenience because the present study is focused on the boiling heat transfer on the steel plate. The size of element is set as 0.1 mm to generate mesh and quad-4 rectangular elements used are which is a rectangular in shape with four nodes on each element are applied for the analysis. Results show that that the 37.98% of Convective heat transfer coefficient of mixture is increased and 13.1% of temperature drop has been observed with 40.67% of heat flux increased for the steel plate moving at 0.1 m/sec.
