Provides a comprehensive coverage of the basic phenomena. It contains twenty-five chapters which cover different aspects of boiling and condensation. First the specific topic or phenomenon is described, followed by a brief survey of previous work, a phenomenological model based on current understanding, and finally a set of recommended design equations or correlations. Detailed references are listed at the end of each chapter for further reading.
