Abstract:The model demonstrates the mechanisms which cause circumferential and axial composition and temperature gradients in the liquid film when zeotropic mixtures undergo evaporation and condensation. Heat transfer in mixtures is shown to be less than the ideal limit due to mass transfer resistance in the vapor. The mass transfer resistance causes bulk temperatures to differ from equilibrium bulk temperatures thus decreasing the temperature difference which drives heat transfer.
