Abstract

The objective of the paper is twofold: first, present methods for modeling the evolution of droplet size spectrum as a result of nucleation, condensation/evaporation and coalescence, and, second, perform an analysis of spontaneously condensing steam flows in transonic nozzles, especially, the effect of initial wetness on spontaneous condensation.
