Chapter 20: Process Heat Transfer

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • The basics of process heat transfer

  • The key relationships for designing and analyzing a heat exchanger

  • Analysis of shell-and-tube heat exchangers

  • Common correlations for heat transfer coefficients for single-phase and change-of-phase conditions

  • The combination of these coefficients with appropriate resistances due to fouling and conduction to determine a single overall heat transfer coefficient

  • Equations for extended heat transfer surfaces (fins) for common fin configurations

  • Methods to design new heat exchangers

  • Predicting the performance of existing exchangers

The purpose of this chapter is to introduce the concepts needed to design and determine the performance of typical heat-exchange ...
