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