SINOPSIS

Predictions carried out by N. Kurul, M. Z. Podowski (RPI), A. Hora, V. Teschendorff (GRS) and C. Prakash (CHAM) are compared with the experimental Data Set No. 16 (S. G. Bankoff and S. C. Lee, Multiphase Science and Technology Vol. 3, pp. 398−422, 1987) on condensation in stratified flow. It is concluded that current modelling approach has significant limitations in reflecting various features that affect condensation in stratified flow. Methods which explicitly account for turbulence in the liquid and its dependence on interfacial shear are needed, but were not used in the prediction methods.
