This paper presents a CFD study of the flow and deposition of particles in vapor in a 1000mm by 20mm narrow rectangular channel. The temperature of the wall is set below the condensation point, so the vapor will change into the liquid phase near the wall. The flow and deposition of the particles in the condition when the phase transition of water occurs is simulated by ANSYS Fluent code. The result shows that the condensation of the water vapor will change the temperature field and the velocity of the flow in the channel. The particles will be forced to the wall due to the thermophoretic force. The condensation developing process will enhance the deposition of the particles while the developed liquid layer will stop the particles flow to the wall.
