The fundamentals of gasdynamics of one-dimensional flows with condensation are reviewed paying special attention to concepts from nonequilibrium flows, honogeneous nucleation, droplet growth. Flow systems for experimental research in condensation, namely steady-flow Laval nozzles, Ludwieg tubes, shock tubes and high intensity supersonic molecular beams are discussed. New and previously published experimental results on homogeneous nucleation of eight vapors, obtained using gasdynamic methods, were critically examined and compared on a uniform basis with steady state homogeneous nucleation theory.
