A unique, single-source volume offering essential material on heat exchanger design.
In a unified approach suitable to many applications, Fundamentals of Heat Exchanger Design details an in-depth thermal and hydraulic design theory underlying two-fluid heat exchangers for steady-state operation. An overall focus is given to offering guidance on applying basic heat exchanger design concepts to the solution of industrial heat exchanger problems.
Critical coverage for complex engineering design analysis features step-by-step guidelines for rating and sizing design procedures for four types of exchangers (extended surface, plate-type, regenerator, and shell-and-tube), examinations of all auxiliary calculations related to heat transfer characteristics and pressure drop calculations, and insightful material on such subjects as:
* Thermal and hydraulic design theory for both recuperators and regenerators
* Surface basic heat transfer and flow friction characteristics
* Heat exchanger surface geometrical properties
* Thermodynamic analysis and modeling
* Flow maldistribution and header design
* Fouling and corrosion
Complete with solved examples and problems clarifying important concepts and applications, Fundamentals of Heat Exchanger Design is a powerful tool for students, researchers, and engineers.
“This is one of the best, current, single-volume, sources of information for those interested in design theory and performance rating methodology for heat exchangers. This is an advanced text that would be most appropriate for graduate students and practicing engineers in the thermal sciences. An introductory course, or text, on basic heat transfer may be required, for those w/ little background in the area, to appreciate the intensity and wealth of information contained in this text.
There is detailed coverage of some subjects only mentioned in other heat exchanger design books, i.e. the temperature effectiveness (P-NTU) method, longitudinal conduction effects, non-uniform heat transfer coefficients, flow maldistribution, header/manifold design, to name a few.
Comprehensive correlations are well-documented and explained, much of them in generalized and dimensionless forms so they are applicable to a large range of fluids and materials. Quite a bit of tabular data, graphical, and reference information is supplied as well. Some examples are typically worked in each chapter illustrating the analysis technique.
Bottomline: An excellent, advanced textbook on the thermo-hydraulic design and performance rating of heat exchangers.”
