Discover Heat Exchangers: Gain an In-Depth Understanding of Types, Applications, and Performance Analysis - Master Key Concepts for Practical Use
Heat exchangers are vital devices that enable efficient heat transfer between two fluids at different temperatures while preventing them from mixing. With applications ranging from household heating and air-conditioning systems to chemical processing and power production in large-scale plants, a comprehensive understanding of heat exchangers is essential.
In this course, we cover crucial aspects of heat exchangers, starting with their classification into Parallel Flow, Counter Flow, Cross Flow, and Shell and Tube types. You will explore the overall heat transfer coefficient (U), which accounts for the contribution of convection in each fluid and conduction through the separating wall.
We examine how the rate of heat transfer between fluids depends on the varying temperature differences across the heat exchanger. You'll learn to determine the overall heat transfer coefficient and the log mean temperature difference (LMTD) for different configurations. The course also introduces the correction factor (F), which accounts for deviations in mean temperature difference from LMTD in complex configurations.
Furthermore, we'll discuss the effectiveness-NTU method, a powerful analytical tool for evaluating heat exchangers when outlet temperatures of fluids are unknown.
By the end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of heat exchanger types, their practical applications, and performance analysis, enabling you to excel in real-world situations.
