Heat Exchanger Design Theory, Fin Efficiency, Variation of Fluid Properties
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.
