Condensation of R-410A in a rectangular channel Academic Article uri icon


  • The relationship between condensation heat transfer coefficients of R-410A and two-phase flow regimes was studied. The flow pattern showed that the condensation was predominantly in the wavy stratified flow regime at a mass flux of less than 200 kg/(s·m2). The regionally averaged heat transfer coefficient for condensing R-410A in a rectangular channel decreased with a decrease in quality, and increased with an increase in mass flux.
