Short
description and remarks
 Engineering point of view
:
'Shell and Tube' Heat Exchanger are widely spread in the field
of chemical engineering. Still it is not clear to arrange the tubes
inside the apparatus in order to get a optimal
heattransferbehaviour.Beginning from a simple configuration with only
one tube(Rad=1.5) we studied cases for 2x2 upto 5x5 tube arrangement
for constant circumference as well as constant area.
My task is Fluid flow calculation in a square of 4 units with 4 circles
in a row, accounting to 16 as a total number. The circles are of
0.09375 radii. The circles are placed at equidistant from each other
and the first circle in the configuration is located at x=0.8, y=3.2.
 Mathematical point of
view:
We studied a 2D cutplane of the above described apparatus.
Fluid flow calculation in a square of 4 units with 16 circles of radii
0.09375,First circle is located at x=0.8 & y=3.2 in square
domain. 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.
