Effective Boundary Element Method for Predicting Corrosion Rate of Heat Exchanger
A heat exchanger is an important equipment for many plants such as a nuclear power generator and steel making plants. It consists of a great number of stainless steel tubes and two navel brass tube plates as shown in Fig.1. If something became wrong with a heat exchanger, tremendous damage would be caused.Since the seawater is usually used as a coolant, it is essential to protect it from galvanic corrosion.
