|The performance of heat exchangers can be assessed with
CFD. This is particularly important for situations where the
exchanger configurations are different enough so that
empirically based correlations are inapplicable. |
the calculation of heat transfer coefficients is not a trivial
problem in CFD. Also not all situations can be modeled
effectively. Flow Simulations, Inc. has perormed over 100
models of heat exchangers and we are very experienced in
calculating heat transfer.
Calculation of heat transfer
coefficients is not a trivial problem in CFD. Also not all
situations can be modeled effectively. Flow Simulations has
experience in determining heat transfer coefficients for many
types of exchangers including units of new or unusual
configuration for which there are no empirical correlations.
Flow distributions around heat exchangers can be modeled
including natural convection effects which are significant in
still fluid conditions.
