The work describes a correlation for heat transfer across the interface formed by a high speed steam jet in contact with and condensing into a cocurrent coaxial flow of subcooled water, where the heat transfer coefficient is directly related to the geometry of the stratified portion of the steam jet, and the characteristic velocity is that of the interfacial layer based on a Reynolds flux analysis. The net steam jet thrust is shown to agree well with values calculated by elementary nozzle theory.
