Heat exchangers are essential in a wide range of engineering applications, including power plants, automobiles, airplanes, process and chemical industries, and heating, air-conditioning, and refrigeration systems. Revised and fully updated with new problem sets, Heat Exchangers: Selection, Rating, and Thermal Design, Fourth Edition presents a systematic treatment of heat exchangers, focusing on selection, thermal-hydraulic design, and rating.
Topics discussed include
Classification of heat exchangers
Basic design methods of heat exchangers for sizing and rating problems
Single-phase forced convection correlations for heat exchangers
Pressure drop and pumping power for heat exchangers and piping circuits
Design methods of heat exchangers subject to fouling
Thermal design methods and processes for double-pipe, shell-and-tube, gasketed-plate, compact, and polymer heat exchangers
Two-phase convection correlations for heat exchangers
Thermal design of condensers and evaporators
The Fourth Edition contains updated information about microscale heat exchangers and the enhancement heat transfer for applications to heat exchanger design and experiment with nanofluids. The Fourth Edition is designed for courses/modules in process heat transfer, thermal systems design, and heat exchanger technology. This text includes full coverage of all widely used heat exchanger types.
