Digital Twin for Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger in Industry 4.0

Digitalization of the heat transfer in shell and tube type heat exchanger is what sets the foundation of the future of thermal industry. In traditional computational model design, a simulation model is validated with the experimental results. A digital twin is a virtual representation of the real system or processes and imbibes the validation of the model. The only difference is that the exchange of information is carried out in real time and is more reliable. A digital twin is not a static representation of the real space but rather a dynamic phenomenon connecting the two spaces. In the present analysis, a comparative finite element analysis of the shell and tube heat exchanger has been performed with an intention to enhance the effectiveness of the heat exchanger process. An approach toward development of the next generation of heat exchangers is discussed in this work.
