Abstract:In the present paper, flow and heat transfer characteristics of shell-and-tube heat exchanger with continuous helical baffles (CH-STHX) is experimentally studied. Correlations for heat transfer and pressure drop, which are estimated by Nusselt number and friction factor, are fitted by experiment data for thermal design. Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) method is also used to compare the heat transfer and flow performance of STHX with continuous helical baffles (CH-STHX), STHX with combined helical baffles (CM… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
