Results are presented for the heat-transfer coefficient for evaporation from the surface of water films flowing along the outside surface of a vertical tube for the cases of laminar and turbulent flow. Correspondence with results for condensation and liquid heating is shown and the transition from laminar to turbulent flow is indicated to depend on quantities other than Reynolds number.
