A previous paper, Johnston et al. (1983a), has described the phenomenon of dryout under a condition of line contact in tube support plate crevices. This paper presents the development of a model for the tube wall temperature distribution. The major effort is given to predicting the extent of the dry patch. The results show a satisfactory comparison with experimental data.
