  • BG1-16 Shellside Longitudinal Liquid-phase and Flow Boiling Heat Transfer for Horizontal Plain Tube Bundles

    August 01, 2017
    This report discusses liquid-phase and flow boiling data collected on the shell side of a horizontal, nonbaffled plain tube bundle. Using these and other HTRI data, we evaluated heat transfer predictions from HTRI Xchanger Suite 7.3 and modified our methods. Fluid temperature measurements around the bundle demonstrate thermal stratification of liquid...

  • STG-21 Computational Simulation of Fluid Flow, Heat Transfer, and Temperature-induced Mechanical Stress in a Shell-and-tube Heat Exchanger

    July 21, 2017
    We completed a multiphysics computational simulation of a shell-and-tube exchanger, where simultaneous fluid flow and heat transfer of both fluid streams occurred. Temperature-induced mechanical stress also acted on the solid structures. A weak coupling of a finite-volume CFD Navier-Stokes model with a finite-element computational solid mechanics model underlies the multiphysics simulation....
