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.Begining from a simple configuration
with only one tube (Rad=1.5; area=pi*Rad^2). we studied case
for 2x2 upto 5x5 tube arrangements for constant circumference
and constant area.

Mathematical point of view:
We studied a 2D cutplane of the above described
apparatus. Fluid flow calculation in a square of 4 units with
four circles of radius 0.375, with the first circle located at
x=1.33 & y=1.33 The calculation starts from rest.The flow is
observed with the Reynolds number, Re=1,000.This simulation
is part of a SoftwarePraktikum at the University of Dortmund
in 2004'.
