Condensation occurs when a saturated or superheated vapor – pure or multi-component – comes into contact with an object, such as a wall or other contaminant, that has a temperature below the saturation temperature.

Dropwise condensation formation theories, critical droplet radius, thermal resistances, and heat transfer coefficient.
Regimes, governing equations for a binary vapor mixture, stagnant pure vapor reservoir, effects of vapor motion, turbulent film condensation, other filmwise condensation configurations, cylinders and spheres, flooding or entrainment limit, and effects of noncondensable gas.
Suction at the porous wall, forced vapor flow, centrifugal field, and capillary action.
Inclined wall, and effect of surface tension.
Two-phase flow regimes and heat transfer predictions.
