This thesis describes the results of a theoretical study to predict the thermal behavior of an internally-cooled tube in a condensing vapor. The analysis constitutes a unique application of the finite element method and provides new insights into the effects of circumferential conduction upon condenser tube performance. Comparisons are made between the present analysis and the theoretical and experimental works of others. The inclusion of circumferential conduction leads to an improvement in the predictive capabilities of the analytical model.
