Problems of Heat Transfer and Hydraulics of Two-Phase Media presents the theory of heat transfer and hydrodynamics. This book discusses the various aspects of heat transfer and the flow of two-phase systems. Organized into two parts encompassing 22 chapters, this book starts with an overview of the laws of similarity for heat transfer to or from a flowing liquid with various physical properties and allowed for variation in viscosity and thermal conductivity. This book then explores the general functional relationship that exists between viscosity and thermal conductivity for thermodynamically similar substances. Other chapters consider the theoretical and experimental work concerning the critical heat flux for the flow of steam–water mixtures via tubes and non-circular ducts. The final chapter deals with the validity of the proposed equation for the variation of drum pressure. This book is a valuable resource for scientific workers, engineers, and technologists who are involved in the development and design of heat exchange equipment, nuclear reactors, and steam generators.
