An Analytical Model to Predict Condensation of R-410A in a Horizontal Rectangular Channel Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • An analytical model to predict condensation heat transfer coefficient in a horizontal rectangular channel was developed. The total local condensation heat transfer coefficient was represented as the weighted average of heat transfer coefficients for each wall. The analytical predictions compared well with the experimental data on the condensation of R-410A in a rectangular channel. The mean deviation was 6.75 percent.
