Discussion of Direct Contact Condensation and Evaporation
This chapter is a summary of the discussion that followed the presentations on direct-contact evaporation and condensation. Some detailed comments on these two topics are presented, which we hope will add to their value to the reader. Next is a discussion of important research and development needs. Finally, some brief conclusions are presented.
