Abstract

Wave regimes of the vapour film condensation A.M. Brener* and L. Tashimov^ 1 Laboratory of Heat & Mass Transfer, State University of South Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan 2Kazakh-Turkish Yassavy University, Kazakhstan Abstract From theoretical analysis and numerical experiment carried out for the vapour film condensation, the wave film flow regimes induced by dependence of the condensate viscosity on temperature were predicted. The criteria for existence of such regimes have been obtained. Both wave and waveless regimes of film condensation on the vertical wall were investigated on the pilot plant. A good match between results of theoretical study and experiments has been obtained. 1 Introduction It is known that increases of the mass consumption in condensate film may have an influence on the stability of waveless flow regime. B. Spindler [1] studied the influence of phase transition on the stability of condensate film flowing over a plane provided that liquid properties are supposed t
