Abstract

The details of plate-fin surface geometries have been presented in this chapter. Different designs of plate-fins used for compact heat exchangers have also been presented. The applications of plate-fin-extended surfaces for heat transfer enhancement in both single-phase and two-phase flows, as studied by researchers across the globe, have been discussed. The works carried out on the fouling of compact heat exchangers has also been dealt with in this chapter.

Keywords
