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
heat-transfer-behaviour.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
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
Software-Praktikum at the University of Dortmund in 2004.
