Abstract

Water or air-water bubble flow passing through tube bundle can be seen in many industrial equipments such as heat exchanger and chemical equipment. In addition, tube bundle can be used as a flow-straightener, -mixer, -resistor, and -damping device. In this study, the effects of tube arrangement of equally or unequally spaced in-line and staggered tube bundle and of void fraction on the flow characteristics such as flow pattern and flow resistance of a tube or tube bundle are examined experimentally.
