An experimental study concerning the characteristics of heat transfer from a dry isothermal flat plate in two-component (water-air) mist flow has been performed for lower water-air mass flow ratios up to 2. 3 percent. It is confirmed that an augmentation of heat transfer is attributable to a latent heat due to evaporation of water droplets within the boundary layer, and that, at a constant Reynolds number and wall temperature, the enhanced rates of heat transfer coefficients are linearly correlated to water mass flow rates for unit cross-sectional area.
