8/13/11 Film Condensation on a Vertical Plate (laminar) Distinguishing Features Ø Generally, the vapor is superheated T,v∞ > Tsat and may be part of a mixture that includes noncondensibles. ( 29 , v sat T T Ø A shear stress at the liquid/vapor interface induces a velocity gradient in the vapor, as well as the liquid.
