Abstract

This paper is concerned with forced convection condensation from a vapour-gas mixture on a horizontal plate embedded in a porous medium. It is found that about 50% reduction in heat transfer may be induced by the presence of only 5% non-condensable gas. Furthermore, the reduction is accentuated at lower operating pressures. By comparison it is indicated that forced convection condensation in porous media is much more sensitive to non-condensable gas than that in an open space.
