Vapor bubble condensation in sub-cooled boiling flows is an important subject of study in the nuclear engineering field for optimizing design and safety of the nuclear system. Sub-cooled boiling flow consists of complicated dynamic phenomena of vapor bubble-water interaction due to the boiling, condensation, break-up and coalescence of the bubble. Understanding the behavior of the vapor bubble is important because it has a large effect on the heat transfer characteristics of the nuclear system.
