In this study, the authors conducted mathematical simulation on the double pipe heat exchanger in which longitudinal fin with the dimension of (2 * 3 * 1000) mm supported on the outer surface of the inner tube. This paper contains the benefits of this design on heat transfer between fluids flowing through the system and at the same time its effect on the heat exchanger effectiveness, which helped us to select the optimum design. A consistent computer program (ANSYS Workbench 15.0) was used in this study to show the behavior of the fluids inside of a heat exchanger, and the results are also obtained by the program.
