The special issue covers wide range of topics under experimental, numerical and analytical scenarios as well as their combination in the field of multiphase flows and phase change heat transfer. The topics include nanofluids, phase change materials, boiling, condensation, bubble and drop dynamics, disperse flows, gas–liquid and liquid–liquid flows, flows in porous media, granular flows. Topics including all aspects of mass, momentum and energy exchange phenomena among different phases will also be covered.

    Abstract This work investigates the steam condensation phenomena in an air-cooled condenser. The considered horizontal flattened tube has a 30 mm hydraulic diameter, and its length is a function of the steam quality with a limit value between 0.95 and 0.05. The mass flow rate ranges from 4 to 40 kg/m2.s with a saturated temperature spanning an interval from 40°C to 80°C. A special approach has been implemented using the Engineering Equation Solver (EES) to solve a series of equations for the two-phase flow pattern and the related heat transfer coefficients. A wavy-stratified structure of the two-phase flow has been found when… More >
