Abstract

A model of homogeneous condensation of water vapor in supersonic expansions was revisited to improve the kinetic parameters of smaller clusters. Previously published Monte Carlo canonical ensemble and molecular dynamics results were integrated into direct simulation Monte Carlo simulations. Simulated Rayleigh scattering intensity data and terminal dimer mole fraction data for an expansion flow were compared with experimental data to test the new models.
