This paper presents the results of numerical simulation of steam bubble growth in a uniformly superheated liquid. The numerical calculation scheme takes into account both inertial and thermal effects. The main regularities of the prosses are discussed by the example of different superheat levels and different liquids: water, mercury and glycerin. Simple estimations of characteristic times of the inertial and transition stages are offered.
