The dependency of condensing steam flow parameters in tubes and channels was studied as a function of different flow modes for the coolant: counter-flow, co-flow, cross-flow. The drop for the total pressure of steam is higher for the counter-flow than for the co-flow or cross-flow modes. The pressure drop was estimated with different computation models as a function flow mode. Calculation results were compared with experimental data.
