Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Design Using CFD Tools

Samal, Anil Kumar (2013) Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Design Using CFD Tools. BTech thesis.



In present day shell and tube heat exchanger is the most common type heat exchanger widely use in oil refinery and other large chemical process, because it suits high pressure application. The process in solving simulation consists of modeling and meshing the basic geometry of shell and tube heat exchanger using CFD package ANSYS 13.0. The objective of the project is design of shell and tube heat exchanger with helical baffle and study the flow and temperature field inside the shell using ANSYS software tools. The heat exchanger contains 7 tubes and 600 mm length shell diameter 90 mm. The helix angle of helical baffle will be varied from 00 to 200. In simulation will show how the pressure vary in shell due to different helix angle and flow rate. The flow pattern in the shell side of the heat exchanger with continuous helical baffles was forced to be rotational and helical due to the geometry of the continuous helical baffles, which results in a significant increase in heat transfer coefficient per unit pressure drop in the heat exchanger
