Abstract

In this chapter, heat exchanger design theory has been discussed. The heat transfer coefficient and friction factor for laminar flow and turbulent flow through ducts, tube banks, thin-film condensation and nucleate boiling have been presented. Also, the concept of fin efficiency and Reynolds analogy has been explained.
