Accurate prediction of condensation plays an important role in the development of high efficiency turbo-machines working on condensable fluid. Therefore it demands modeling of poly-disperse characteristic of number distribution function while modeling condensation. Two such kind of models are considered in this work and they are namely, quadrature method of moments (QMOM) and multi-fluid method (MFM) models. The vital difference between these two models lies in the method of discretisation of the droplet size distribution. Further, their numerical aspects like ease of implementation in general purpose computational fluid dynamics solvers, accuracy and associated computational cost are discussed. In order to obtain accurate thermodynamic properties, the real gas formulations defined in IAPWS-IF97 are used. These algorithms are applied to the compressible Navier-Stokes solver of Fluidyn MP and tests are carried on Laval nozzle and compared with the experimental measurements.
