In 2011, Professor Srinivas Garimella, the Hightower Chair and Professor and Founder/Director of the Sustainable Thermal Systems Laboratory (STSL) at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, began work on a 3-1/2 year contract with HTRI entitled Condensation Heat Transfer and Pressure Drop of Propane. This project will conclude in FY 2015. Initial measurements and visualizations were completed with n-pentane and are reported here, as well as HTRI Technical Report CT-33.
