Aspentechs heat exchanger design rating suite of software is fully integrated. As per the design of all shell and tube heat exchangers one fluid flows through the smaller tubes. This paper presents the development of an educational computeraided design tool for the shell and tube heat exchanger.
This paper describes a user friendly computer software developed for the thermal and hydraulic design of shell and tube heat exchangers based on the open literature delaware method. Sthex is a software tool that is made to demonstrate the chemical design rating calculations of shell tube heat exchangers. This integration allows for more collaboration between thermal and mechanical design groups for shell and tube heat exchangers. Now users can easily transfer data between groups reducing manual data entry and ensuring consistent design data.
The common focus of the publication is to predict the variation of lmtd heat transfer coefficient nusselt number and pressure drop with a change in values of reynolds number for 00 300 and 600 baffles situated in the heat exchanger as shown in figure 1. Be it any configuration the design of these heat exchangers is such that one fluid passes through the shell and is called shell side fluid while other fluid passes through the tubes and is called the tube side fluid. Very easy to use and user friendly. A form of shell and tube heat exchanger double pipe heat exchangers employ the simplest heat exchanger design and configuration which consists of two or more concentric cylindrical pipes or tubes one larger tube and one or more smaller tubes.
The use of this soft ware will bridge the gap between engineering. Plate heat exchanger design software for industrial and educational applications nikola r. Unlike other tools ensures that the calculations are performed step by step to help in understanding the design calculations. Shell and tube type heat exchanger having a 00 b 300 and c 600 baffle angles.
