Physically based closed-form solutions for film condensation of pure vapors in vertical tubes

This work analytically solves the governing equations of the laminar film condensation from pure vapors in vertical tubes to find the condensate film thickness. The solution is then extended to turbulent flow conditions for steam. All other relevant quantities are derived from the film thickness sol...
