Short description and remarks

Engineering point of view :
Shell and Tube HeatExchangers are widely spread in
the field of chemical engineering. Still it is not
clear how to arrange the tubes inside the apparatus in
oredr to get an optimal heattransferbehaviour,
beginning from a simple comfiguration with only one
tube (Rad = 1.5), we studied cases from 1x1 to 5x5
tube arrangement for constant circumference as well as
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 3 circles in a row, accounting to 9 as a
total number. The circles are of 0.166 radii. The circles
are placed at equidistant from each other and the
first circle in the configuration is located at x=1,
y=3. The calculation starts from rest. The
calculation is observed with Reynolds number,
Re=1,000. This simulation is part of a
SoftwarePraktikum at the University of Dortmund in 2004.
