The film hydrodynamics determined by Dukler and coworkers, together with standard heat transfer considerations, provide a coherent description of heat transfer across turbulent liquid films. Predictions are found to be in agreement with overall heat transfer measurements for nonsheared (falling) films. Qualitative features are deduced for heat transfer across sheared films.
