A heat exchanger is a vessel that transfers heat energy from one process stream to another. A common physical configuration for heat exchangers is a shell and tube exchanger, where a bundle of tubes sits inside a shell. There is no mixing of fluid between the shell and the tubes.
Heat transfer is a fundamental part of thermal engineering. It is the science of the rules
governing the transfer of heat between systems of different temperatures. In thermodynamics,
the heat transferred from one system to its surroundings is assumed as a
given process parameter. This assumption does not give any information on how the
heat is transferred and which rules determine the quantity of the transferred heat.
Heat transfer describes the dependencies of the heat transfer rate from a corresponding
temperature difference and other physical conditions....
The theoretical analysis and modeling of heat and mass transfer rates produced in
evaporation and condensation processes are significant issues in a design of wide
range of industrial processes and devices. This book introduces advanced processes
and modeling of evaporation, boiling, water vapor condensation, cooling, heat
transfer, heat exchanger, fluid dynamic simulations, fluid flow, and gas flow to the
