This paper discusses questions of the homogeneous condensation of water vapors in high-velocity flows. Special attention is paid to agreement between the results of calculations and experimental data in a wide range of temperatures and pressures in the condensation zone and of the gradients of the gasdynamic parameters. The article proposes a relationship enabling a sufficiently exact determination of the value of the maximal supercooling. A parametric investigation is made, showing that the… CONTINUE READING
