A Model of Heat and Mass Transfer in Gas Phase in Axial and Turbulent Dispersed Annular Flows


The problem of simulation of heat and mass transfer in the gas phase of film devices in the regime of weak and strong phase interaction has been solved. The Deissler three-layer model of turbulent boundary layer was used. Expressions have been derived for calculating the average Nusselt and Sherwood numbers. Examples of calculations for various conditions of phase interaction and comparison with experimental data are shown.
