Abstract:Size distribution functions of drops on inclined surfaces, taken from the literature, are modified to account for different geometric and surface conditions. These distribution functions along with the geometric model of drops and the contact angle results are used to develop a new model of condensate retention. The new model is successful in predicting the mass of condensate retained on coils tested by several other researchers. Preliminary analysis and experiments are presented as a step towards future extensions of the model.
