Abstract
The flow of pure saturated vapor between parallel plates, with film condensation on the bottom plate, is considered and a genuine approximate solution is obtained. The mixed differential-integral approach of this paper predicts film-thickness profile, condensation rate, wall hear transfer rate, and other quantities of interest. Most importantly, the non-linearities of the flow predict a new phenomenon of formation of recirculating zones beyond a certain distance downstream of the flow.
