Equation 2 is the Nusselt equation for laminar film condensation in vertical tubes; the constant has been increased by 20% as recommended by McAdams (1954) on the basis of comparison with test data.
[h.sub.Nu] = heat transfer coefficient given by Equation 2, the Nusselt equation
Borchman (1967) reported good agreement of his data with the Nusselt equation at [V.sub.GT] < 3 m/s, and Chato (1967) reported that his laminar condensation analysis applies at [Re.sub.GT] < 35,000.
Equation 5 is the Nusselt equation for laminar film condensation in vertical tubes; the constant has been increased by 20% as recommended by McAdams (1954) on the basis of comparison with test data.
