Laminar boundary layer anal. of film condensation on vertical flat plates with a general temp. distribution at the surface is presented. By using a variable temp. boundary condition at the surfaces of the plate, the difficulties encountered in the conventional similarity anal. applied to a general temp. variation case are overcome. Solns. are presented for parametric values of this variable, q0, and the heat transfer results are developed. These results are compared with the isothermal case under 2 types of boundary conditions, namely (i) the power-law surface temp. variation and (ii) the exponential surface temp. variation. Further, comparison with forced and free convection results indicates that the heat-transfer results are influenced to a max. extent by the nonisothermal boundary conditions.
