Abstract

The film-condensation heat transfer coefficient of normal hydrogen (25% para-hydrogen) was determined. In this investigation, hydrogen was condensed on the wall of a vertical copper tube (15 mm i.d., 70 mm long) under the steady-state condition. From the experimental results, the condensing heat transfer coefficient for saturated hydrogen vapors was shown to be in fairly good agreement with that predicted using Nusselt's theory including the case in which the temperature difference across the condensate film was small, on the order of one Kelvin.
