Abstract

The boundary layer equations are applied to obtain a solution for the heat transfer on a condensing hemispherical surface. The method of solution does not restrict itself to assuming a zero condensate thickness at the boundary. It is demonstrated that excluding the radius of curvature effects in the momentum equation leads to an insignificant error. However, the solution is dependent on the boundary condition assumed for the condensate layer. The analysis is generalized for axisymmetric bodies. Comparisons are made to data, but only with limited success.
