Slightly nonequilibrium condensation of a saturated vapor on a liquid surface

  • S. P. Radev


A solution of the Barnett equations is obtained for the problem of slightly nonequilibrium vapor condensation on a liquid surface. It is shown that a Barnett sublayer with nonzero pressure gradient exists inside the nonequilibrium wall layer. The sublayer diminishes the interphase condensation resistance and induces supersaturation of the vapor.
