A simple analytical expression is derived which predicts the effect of mass transfer on countercurrent heat transfer to a vaporizing body. In this theory, the fluid stream is assumed to be inviscid and of constant thermal conductivity. The inviscid theory correlates well with heat-transfer data without mass transfer and is believed to predict heat-transfer rates fairly accurately at high mass-transfer rates.
