    • Relationship between pressure drop and saturation temperature
    • Condensing flow regimes: Vertical units/Horizontal units, tube side and shell side
    • Specifying pure component condensers in Xist
    • Noncondensables and mixture condensation
    • Specifying mixture condensers and inerts in Xist
    • Vapor phase coefficient
    • Desuperheating and subcooling
    • Bulk-equilibrium vs. two-layer subcooling model
    • Venting inerts
    • Drainage
    • Baffle design in condensers
