Mathematical Models of Heat Exchangers

  • Dawid Taler
Part of the Studies in Systems, Decision and Control book series (SSDC, volume 161)


In this chapter, formulae will be derived that define the temperature of fluids in four basic types of the heat exchanger. If in a given cross-section the hot and the cold medium temperatures (T h and T c , respectively) and the heat transfer coefficients on the hot and the cold medium side (α h and α c , respectively) are known, it is possible to find the wall temperature T w .
