Numerical Simulation about Heat Transfer Coefficient for the Double Pipe Heat Exchangers
Based on the EES software, a heat transfer coefficient calculation program about double pipe heat exchanges is established. Some experimental data are compared to the simulation data for proving that the program can predict the heat transfer coefficient of the double pipe heat exchangers, and then the change of heat transfer coefficient is calculated and analyzed with relevant parameters. The results show that the heat transfer coefficient of heat exchanger are increasing with the flow of the shell side, the tube side and the logarithmic mean temperature difference, and when the temperature difference equals to 12°C, the total heat transfer coefficient can up to 2400W/m2.K or so.
