DWCmod - dropwise condensation modeling

A simple python implementation of thermodynamic models for dropwise condensation. Overall heat flux, single drop heat flux and drop size distribution can be calculated for various fluids. The fluid properties are calculated automatically thanks to CoolProp [1].

At the moment, only one model is implemented. Please refer to the original paper for a detailed description of the model [2].

Getting Started

The easiest way is to use the included jupyter notebook (DWCmod.ipnb) and modify the input values as needed. You can run the notebook directly in your browser via mybinder.org: Binder

All thermodynamic calculationsc are done in DWC_models.py. DWC_plotting.py contains some basic plotting functions.

The following non-standard python packages are required:

  • matplotlib
  • numpy
  • scipy
  • coolprop
