Heat and mass transfer and duration of the desublimation of water vapor in vacuum

  • E. F. Andreev
  • D. P. Lebedev


Certain features of the mechanism for the growth of the condensed phase during desublimation of water vapor in vacuum are examined. Approximate equations are found for the duration of water-vapor desublimation on a flat plate.
