Short description and remarks
Engineering point of view :
'Shell and Tube'HeatExchanger are widely spread in the field of
chemical engineering. Still it is not clear how to arrange the tubes
inside the appartus in order to get a optimal heattransferbehaviour.
Beginnig from a simple configuration with only one tube we studied cases for 2x2 upto 5x5 tube arrangemnets for
constant circumference as well as constant area.
Mathematical point of view :
This page contains the 2D simulation of fluid flows in a square of
4 units with 16 circle of radius 0.375,first circle is located
at x = 0.8 & y =0.8 and these 16 circles are located
at equidistance. The calculation
starts from rest.
The flow is observed with the Reynolds
This simulation is part of a
SoftwarePraktikum at the University of Dortmund in
2004.
