In this paper, condensation of water vapor from a mixture of CO 2 /H 2 O is studied numerically. To simplify the study and focus on the physical model, a simple vertical plate was chosen. Two condensation models are developed and numerical approach is considered to implement these models. The main objective in the current paper was to study the capability of numerical modeling in prediction of complex process. Results showed that developed condensation models in combination with numerical
