The refrigerants tested were R12, R22, R134a and near azeotropic blends R32/R125. The study focused primarily on measurement and prediction of condensing heat transfer coefficients and the relationship between heat transfer coefficients and two-phase flow regimes. Stratified, wavy, wavy annular, annular, annular mist and slug flows were observed. True mist flow without a stable wall film was not observed during condensation tests. The various flow regimes were divided into two broad categories of gravity-dominated and shear-dominated flows. Heat transfer correlations that were developed for each of these flow regimes successfully predicted data from the present study and from several other sources.
