Explanation:
I'm not an engineer, so maybe I have misunderstood these references.

Die auf diese Weise maximal übertragbaren Wärmestromdichten sind jedoch durch die sogenannte Siedekrise begrenzt. Die Wärmestromdichte, bei der die Siedekrise auftritt, wird kritische Wärmestromdichte oder auch Critical Heat Flux (CHF) genannt.

Bei Punkt B erreicht die Wärmestromdichte ihren maximalen Wert, der im allgemeinen als kritische Wärmestromdichte (Critical Heat Flux = CHF) oder als Siedekrise bezeichnet wird.

neutral  opolt: You have not misunderstood at all, Kim -- it's just that there's a term which is slightly more in line with the source.
