CFD on steam condensation

I was told that I will start a project with CFD applications in steam condensation in ducts. Of course, I will begin with simple cases, such laminar, rectangular channel, etc. Afterwards, I will move into more complicated cases, such as channels with ribs, corrugated channels, turbulent flows, etc.

However, I have no idea about the start of this work. I could not find any related literature in such field. Could any expert in this area recommend some literature for me?
