    • Film condensation of liquid metals -- precision of measurement 

      Wilcox, Stanley James; Rohsenow, Warren M. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Engineering Projects Laboratory, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, [1969], 1969)
      Major differences exist in results published by investigators of film condensation of liquid metal vapors. In particular, the reported dependence of the condensation coefficient on pressure has raised questions about both ...
    • Heat transfer during film condensation of a liquid metal vapor 

      Sukhatme, S. P.; Rohsenow, Warren M. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, [1964], 1964)
      The object of this investigation is to resolve the discrepancy between theory and experiment for the case of heat transfer durirnfilm condensation of liquid metal vapors. Experiments by previous investigators have yielded ...
    • Mechanism and behavior of nucleate boiling heat transfer to the alkalai liquid metals 

      Deane, Charles William; Rohsenow, Warren M. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Heat Transfer Laboratory, [1969], 1969)
      A model of boiling heat transfer to the alkali liquid metals is postulated from an examination of the events and phases of the nucleate boiling cycle. The model includes the important effect of microlayer evaporation which ...
    • Mechanism of nucleate pool boiling heat transfer to sodium and the criterion for stable boiling 

      Shai, Isaac (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Engineering Projects Laboratory, [1967], 1967)
      A comparison between liquid metals and other common fluids, like water, is made as regards to the various stages of nucleate pool boiling. It is suggested that for liquid metals the stage of building the thermal layer plays ...
