An experimental study of complete convective condensation inside narrow channels is presented in this paper. Two-phase flows patterns and their transition (annular, annular-wavy, slug and bubbly flow) are visualized for the two tube diameters under study. A significant difference is observed for the two sizes of tube. Experimental results of the bubble radius decrease are then determined and compared to a model of bubble collapse in a subcooled and infinite liquid.
