About this book
This monograph presents a comprehensive treatment of analytical solutions to problems in the area of non-equilibrium evaporation and condensation processes. The book covers, among others, topics such as systems of conversation equations for molecular fluxes of mass, momentum and energy within the Knudsen layer, spherical growth of vapor bubbles in volumes of highly superheated liquid. The target audience primarily comprises research experts in the field of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students alike.
