Two-phase flow regimes are reviewed briefly. A physical model, which is based on the concept that droplet diffusion through a steam boundary layer is the limiting mechanism for burnout in turbulent flow, is described. An equation is derived relating burnout to other parameters in fog flow. With simplifying assumptions, an order-of-magnitude agreement between analysis and experimental burnout data in fog flow is demonstrated.
