The earlier analyses of Nusselt and Rose which predict heat transfer in a condensing cross flow over an infinite cylinder are extended to account for the Marangoni effect. The influence on local heat transfer is notable for cases of high vapor velocity. The average values of heat transfer are not as easily compared with experimental results due to a singularity in the solution corresponding to the rapid thickening of the condensate layer.
