    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional


    Condensation of steam on wall has been simulated with CFD code Fluent which has been modified with a condensation model. The atmosphere contains air and steam in the first and additionally helium in the second case. The condensation rate compared to experimental values shows rather good agreement. The end pressure in both cases is calculated with good accuracy. The work is part of European SARnet co-operation.
