This paper provides a rationally based method to calculate the condensation coefficient of superheated vapor for condensation inside tubes. The method is theoretically based, and is applicable to any pure vapor. The method may be easily extended to condensation inside enhanced tubes, or to shell-side condensation. This work is an extension of a theory previously presented by Lee et al. (1991).
