Dear Mr. Amine,

thank you!

You are right. I tried the computation of HTC with constant Nusselt number and, as you said, only specification of HTC in terms of "k*Nu/d" was enough. Maybe there is a specific reason why the implementation of "Ranz-Marshall" model requires also addition of interface area.

Regarding "Geo-Reconstruct", I found it as a suitable in the case of planar surface evaporation. This is shown in the attached figure.

Best regards,
